      Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Hawfields Middle School. I am looking forward to an exciting year! My name is Joan Love, and I am your child’s 7th grade ELA teacher.  We will explore a variety of texts, figurative language, text structures, vocabulary, and learning strategies. This year will be a  great adventure! The following are a few of the areas we will focus on this year:


    • Annotations
    • Analyzing relationships/ viewpoints
    • Text Evidence
    • Supporting claims


    I’m filled with excitement and anticipation as we embark on this journey.
