MeWelcome to 7th Grade Language Arts!
Hello! My name is Megan Rose and I am thrilled to be your 7th grade Language Arts teacher this year! A little bit about me, I grew up in Burke, Virginia and went through the Fairfax County Public School system. After completing my undergrad at George Mason University in 2017, I went back and completed my Masters program at Mason as well. I have far too many hobbies to name them all, but a couple include reading, volleyball, baking (and eating), and I love spending my weekends binge watching a good show with my husband and our dogs, Sly and Violet, curled up next to me. I can't wait to get to know each and every student and all of the wonderful families who attend Porter!

CLASS ANNOUNCEMENTS: 

September 18th, 2020

In case you need a recap, here are all of the things that needed to be completed this week: 

  • Independent Novel Selection
  • Independent Reading Discussion Board One (book title, author, first impressions of the book, and goal for finishing it)
  • Writing Team Surveys
  • Six Word Story Submission & Two Comments

I'll post an announcement on Monday morning explaining all of your tasks and expectations for asynchronous learning. Enjoy your weekend!


September 14th, 2020

I hope that you had a relaxing weekend. Remember, on Mondays, there are NO LIVE SESSIONS for any classes. Students are expected to be completing asynchronous work on Monday or requesting office hour time with teachers.

For today's asynchronous class time, please navigate over to the Modules section and open the "Monday - Asynchronous Learning" module. Most of the time, you will be working on your Independent Reading & Discussion posts on Monday's class time, however for this week, you will be completing the Myers Briggs Assessment. This is all linked in the module and all of the directions are on there. 

If you have already completed this task, please spend 20 minutes reading a book of your choice. We will discuss independent reading when I see you next :) Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns!

September 11th, 2020

We did it :) We made it through the week. It was such a pleasure to meet each and every one of you this week. I hope that as we get more settled into school that everyone feels comfortable to turn on their cameras whenever they can so that I can see your faces :) Here is a breakdown of what assignments needed to be completed this week:

  • Getting to Know You Activity
  • Sign the Safe Space Pledge

For Monday's asynchronous class time, please navigate over to the Modules section and open the "Monday - Asynchrnous Learning" module. Most of the time, you will be working on your Independent Reading & Discussion posts on Monday's class time, however for this week, you will be completing the Myers Briggs Assessment. This is all linked in the module and all of the directions are on there. Please get that done on Monday for class! 

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out!
