Ms. Miranda Barringer
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! I am new to Poquoson, but I am very excited to work with each and every one of you. I believe that the classroom should a be a safe environment where students feel that they can take risks to reach higher engagement with deeper understanding. My class is a place where participation is neccessary to explore the various forms and sides of English. My goal is to foster growth and development as well as supporting interest in the subject area. I want students to take away real world skills and connections of English beyond the classroom because this subject is not isolated within a building. A big component of the room is self adovacy and responsibilty aligning with real world preparedness. Students will discuss and explore with guidance from me, encouraging their active engagement in all aspects of the course. Not every student speaks the loudest, but every student needs a way to express themselves. I believe it is my job to create that outlet and as many opportunities to use it as possible.

I am excited to be starting the 4th Quarter with you! Our class may look a little different than what we are used to, but we will navigate our way through this change together. Here is some information you may find helpful.
When we have live instructional sessions or small group meetings, they will be on Fridays at 2pm.
It is going to be very important that you check your PCPS GMail account and our Google Classroom at least once a day as these will be the primary ways that I will communicate with you during the 4th quarter.
If you are not sure how to join or use Google Classroom or just need a quick refresher, please take a moment to watch this short video. How to Sign-in to Google Classroom and Access Materials If student has not signed up with my personal google classroom, please go to assignments for 7th grade or 8th grade for further instructions.
