Ms. Vanderpool - Language Arts


Welcome to 7th Grade Language Arts!

I have been a teacher in the Nampa School District for 10 years, with this being my sixth year at South Middle School. Prior to teaching in Nampa, I taught English in Taiwan for a year. I graduated from Northwest Nazarene University with both my Bachelors in Education and my Masters in Educational Leadership.

I am excited to be your Language Arts teacher this year as we journey into the world of literature, grammar, vocabulary, and writing! We will be reading several novels throughout the year which will align with the rest of our curriculum. We also have the privilege of continuing to use our new curriculum that will help us meet the Common Core Standards and prepare students for testing at the end of the year.

Students will need the following items for this class:
- 100 page Composition Book
- Highlighters (preferably multiple colors)
- Pencils, erasers, sharpeners, etc...
