7th Grade English
Courses Taught: 7th Grade English
Welcome to Ms. Carroll's 7th Grade ELA Class!
I know many of you have questions and concerns regarding our plan for this school year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please know that we are doing our very best under the current circumstances. I am so looking forward to this year with my students, but it will take lots of patience from all of us (teachers, students, and parents) to get through these next few months as we navigate our new normal.

About the Teacher
Education and Experience:
I received my BA in Elementary Education with endorsements in Special Education, Science, and Social Studies. I also have obtained a specialty license in English/Language Arts.
I am so excited to be a part of the 7th grade English team this year! I am a gymnastics, cheerleading, and tumbling coach at ConXion gym, and I hope to bring the same level of energy and enthusiasm into my classroom. I am a dog mom, and my boxer, Joplin, turned 6 this summer. I am also an avid yoga practitioner, and I believe it is important to remember that even as a teacher, we are always learning, growing, and improving. I cannot wait to get to know each of you better as the school year begins! GO JAGS!
