Welcome! My name is Deanna Maxwell and this year I will be your student's 8th grade English Language Arts teacher here at Bogle Junior High. I'm excited to work with you and your student this year. Outside of the classroom I enjoy spending time in nature, cooking, spending time with family, playing with my two cats and two dogs and furthering my own writing career.

My Education and Professional Background

I obtained my Bachelors of Science in secondary education English at Northern Arizona University with certificates in creative writing and literature. I've had experience with 9th grade English, 12th grade AP English, and have peer instructed for freshman college composition classes several times.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that students learn best when they ask authentic questions and interpret classroom content to create their own perspectives. Maintaining a respectful classroom environment is essential in the learning process. Students learn best when they know why they are learning something and they read content in a meaningful way. I believe that every student should be given multiple opportunities to write in the classroom so that they can gain confidence and skills. It is important to me that I create a setting that is comfortable and open for students to learn in. I want students to take charge of their own education and take responsibility for it. All students deserve equal opportunities and I plan to give them that in my classroom.
