My name is Ms. Nina, and I am a total nut for literacy and language learning -- total nut! In fact, my passion for reading and writing is filled with such genuine enthusiasm that students have often called me a little crazy, but that whacky energy is also exactly what makes my passion for literacy contagious. It works, and it shows not only in my students' language progress and MAP scores, but also, and more importantly, in the lives of the students, who learn to truly love reading and writing. I work hard to make learning fun -- and thus desirable -- because I deeply believe that literacy is the key to lifelong learning in any language.
Students and parents, this website is your resource. On these pages you can stay up-to-date with what’s going on in my classroom, including homework assignments, descriptions, and due dates. I also use this site to publish and showcase student work! Please interact with published work by offering positive feedback in the comment space below each post. Finally, this site is a great way to contact me, which I encourage you to do any time!
