Sixth-Grade Reading and Language Arts
Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Amanda Aird
Welcome to sixth-grade reading and language arts. I'm looking forward to diving into new stories, books, and articles with your students this year. We'll flex our writing muscles as well with essays and poems as well.
I am a sixth-year teacher, and this is my fourth year at Alexander Middle School.
I attended Trinity University in San Antonio for both my undergraduate and my graduate degrees. I hold a Bachelor's in English and a Master's in the arts of teaching. Literature and writing have always been a passion of mine, so it was a natural progression to begin teaching it. I'm an avid reader outside of school with a penchant for fantasy and adventure stories. The kids will likely tell you of my somewhat rabid Harry Potter fandom.
I am a stickler for grammar, headings, and handwriting which I'll remind students of on their assignments.
