Hi. My name is Amy Schkade (Scottie) and I am elated to be teaching 8th grade English Language Arts. I have experience in every grade except 6th, 7th, and High School. I love teaching. It is my calling and there is nothing I would rather be doing.
At this stage in your child's life, they either love or loathe reading. I have attached a book list from author, Penny Kittle to give you some ideas of books to help your child choose from. I enjoy the challenge of getting a "non-reader" picking up a book without being asked to. I really hope to instill in your child the love of reading and getting a chance to escape from reality and learn new things that a book can offer.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your childs' teacher.
