Welcome 6th and 7th Grade Scholars! My name is Yolanda Forbes and I am your Language Arts teacher. I am entering my seventh year of teaching (third year here at SCJH). I attained my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences from the University of South Florida and a Masters Degree in Education (K-12 Studies). I am mother to a beautiful, energetic three year old named Londyn. I love all things Apple! In my spare time, I enjoy reading and binge watching old television shows. I have a great passion for learning. My ultimate goal as an educator is to inspire my students to develop a passion for learning as well as guide them to be responsible citizens in our society.
This year my classroom will be a paperless and flipped classroom. What that means is that all assignments will be submitted digitally in Google Classroom. In a flipped classroom, students are introduced to a lesson outside of class. Students will either watch an assigned video or view a PowerPoint and take notes on the information at home. This way students will be prepared for the next day's lesson. Most assignments will be completed in the classroom. I will be there with you to ask any and all questions about the assigned work.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or message me in FOCUS.
I look forward to an exciting school year!
