Ms. Forbes
Meet and Greet

Ms. Yo

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 in K-12 Studies. I am a mother to a beautiful, little diva named Londyn. I love all things Apple and Vera Bradley! 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 what I like to call "paper lite." What that means is that you will have a choice to complete each assignment on paper or digitally, however all assignments will be submitted in Google Classroom. 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 (

I look forward to an exciting school year!
