WELCOME TO MRS.GJONI'S 8TH GRADE ELA CLASS
I wear many hats here at Gurrie Middle School. I teach ELA 2, 7th Grade Social Studies, 7th Grade ELA, and 8th Grade ELA. This will be my 4th year at Gurrie, and my 5th year of teaching. I have a B.A. in English-Secondary Education, and will begin my M.ED this fall in Curriculum & Instruction with an ESL/Bilingual endorsement.
This year we will continue the move to a digital-based classroom with Google Chromebooks!
Most assignments will be done via Google Apps. I will be posting assignments and announcements via Google Classroom which is synced with each student's Google Drive. This tool allows students to create and submit paperless documents, communicate with their teachers and peers, and organize their classwork. Currently there is no parent access feature, but you may use your student's login information to keep up with the class agenda, calendar, and assignments, and parents can sign up for daily, weekly, or monthly email notifications sent directly from Google Classroom.
