Hello! My name is Jennifer Landes, and I am extremely excited to be the English teacher for the Investigators. I received my degree in English and my Secondary certification through Mary Baldwin University. This is my fifthtenth year teaching, although not all of them have been in the public school setting. I homeschooled my children for many years and also taught for homeschooling communities. This is my sixth year with Augusta County Public Schools.
I have an exciting year planned for your student, filled with dramatic stories, stimulating discussions, and captivating presentations. Implementing various reading strategies, the Investigators will read both fiction and non-fiction texts as well as current news articles. Through reading, they will strengthen their writing skills by annotating, forming opinions, and writing persuasive, narrative, and expositive papers. Investigators will use computers to enhance their learning by creating and presenting original works.
I can be reached during my office hours: Monday 1-3 and Tuesday-Friday 12:45-1:15 or through Remind: Remind English 7
I look forward to a great year,
