Hello and welcome to Ms. Fortney’s 7th & 8th Grade English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Strategies Class!

My Education and Professional Background

This is the beginning of my first year teaching. I have had many experiences in the classroom in grades ranging from kindergarten to seniors in high school. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Education pertaining to both Special and Elementary Education.

My Educational Philosophy

My job as an educator is to ensure that all students are given the tools and resources needed to become a self-sufficient student. I believe that providing each student with strategies and resources needed to help them succeed not only academically but socially will ensure their success as a student. I will individualize instruction and assessments to meet all students’ needs along with meeting and exceeding standards and learning goals. I believe it is my job to find what motivates students and help guide them to become life-long learners.
