7th and 8th Grade English Language Arts

 
Welcome to 7th and 8th Grade English Language Arts! 
 
My name is Ms. Russ. I have been in the Hackettstown School District for eleven years! In that time, I've taught some version of ELA in every grade from 5th to 12th. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in Creative Writing at Montclair State University, and I received my teaching certificate as a graduate student at Fairleigh Dickinson University. I am currently working on my MA at Rowan State University. 
 
Here are my class policies and procedures.
 
Some important links for my students:
 
IXL - ELA skills practice. 
ClassDojo - Where I record daily behavior points. 
Google Classroom - Where you will turn in most of your work. 
 
The best way to reach me is via email - jruss@hackettstown.org. Please email me if you'd like to set up a time for a  phone call.
