• Welcome to Ms. Gifford's Classroom Page

    Our theme for the year is empathy: empathy for ourselves as learners, for our classmates, and for those we discover in our reading and writing. Reading, writing, listening, and speaking will be the tools we use to build these bridges of empathy. Words connect us with others, allowing us to see things from another perspective. As we read articles and books, write our own stories and papers, and share our thinking with each other, we will grow as both language arts students and people of empathy!
    This page contains links to assignments and directions for our class assignments. Please see the course pages for specific grading information and unit overviews.

    My office hours are from 3:05-3:20 each day in Room 216. Please see below for my teaching schedule. Contact me via email or phone for specific questions and concerns.
