English Language Arts Faculty

Pamela Walker, 6th Grade ELA and Reading Teacher

I chose teaching as a second career because I couldn't imagine any more meaningful work than helping young people make sense of the world around them. I have always been excited by the process of searching for and making new connections. For me, this is the essence of learning, and I hope I can share it with my students.

Maureen Mines, 7th Grade English Language Arts and Reading Teacher

The middle school years have been my favorite age group to teach. This is the moment, at the dawn of adolescence, when the brain is developing at an astounding rate, when the individual begins to see himself or herself within a larger society and to contemplate what that actually means.  I cherish the challenges and rewards that come with the task of gently ushering students through that transition.

Andrew Hamilton, 8th Grade Language Arts and Reading Teacher

I suppose I have been shadowing teachers since I was in kindergarten, and this shadowing has given me the incentive to pursue the first career that many of us are exposed to. I am a teacher because I want to help young people learn skills for life, break barriers and discover their potential.
