Hello seventh grade parents!


I am (more than) excited to launch into this brand new year with your students.


Seventh grade in my classroom - and beyond the classroom - will hold adventure, challenge, discovery, creativity, and rigorous learning each and every day.


Some highlights of seventh grade at Kepler:
  • Signature Course “Nerd Herd,” where students will learn technology skills, from typing to podcasting
  • Google Classroom, an online platform where students can create a digital portfolio of their work
  • Our class blog, which will be a collaboration between the students and myself
  • Social Studies : moving through medieval and early modern history all around the globe
  • Mathematics : exploring pre-algebra and algebra as students dig deeper into abstract concepts
  • English Language Arts : developing writing, reading, and critical thinking skills through literature


I would love to have YOU share whatever it is you have to share with our class this year! Volunteering in the classroom to run a station, joining us as a guest speaker, chaperoning a field trip, helping coordinate a class party… anything you have to offer, I would enjoy collaborating with you. Parents and families are a vital part of our classroom community.
