Thank you for taking time to visit my webpage!
My name is Ms. Chatman and this is my 12th year teaching. Before joining the TMS team I taught 8th grade ELA and SS at Graham Middle here in ABSS and in Randolph county. Prior to that I had the pleasure of teaching ESL in South Korea.
What Can You Expect This Year?
So glad you asked!
Here in Chatman's Space we will spend time each day reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Students will read novels of choice as well as class novels that are assigned. In addition to reading we will find our way through the process of writing and learn how to find our own voice. That voice will become louder when students interact with one another during Friday Forums and Open Mic Mondays. Keep an eye out for the "Article of the Week" each Friday because it will provide exposure to our world and another opportunity for discussion the following week. Technology will play a large role in our classroom through online portfolios, Canvas (learning management system), and other online tools.
Speaking of technology, check out some of Ms. Chatman's videos on Youtube.
