Ms. Amanda Aird
Welcome to sixth-grade 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, imaginative stories, quickwrites, and poems.
I am an eighth-year teacher, and this is my sixth year at Alexander Middle School.
California is my home state, but I've been a full-time Texan since college. 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. I'm also 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 every assignment. I also hold students accountable for their spelling.
