    Hello and welcome to 7th grade ELA! I am very excited to work alongside you as we explore and discover literature this year.

    This year, our curriculum will be focused around the Hero’s Journey and examining how literature has morphed throughout time. I am very excited to hit the ground running on the first day of class discussing the quality of fictional and real life heroes as presented in the works we examine.

    As a 7th grade student, it is the expectation that you begin to take ownership of your education. As we tackle projects, essays and assignments, I expect each student to reach out for clarification and challenge themselves to take ownership and direction in what they are working on.

    In a nutshell, I want to hear from you!

    Below, please find out how you contact me outside of class.

    Looking forward to a GREAT year!



    Ms. Dillon
