Mrs. Somers
"So Matilda's strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone." - Roald Dahl
Writing Begins with Reading ...   

Welcome to Mrs. Somers' English class pages. I'm already excited to meet all of you, and I'm looking forward to partnering with you in your success. For you seniors, the year will fly by more quickly than you can imagine. In a blink it will be Saturday, May 30, and I will have the pleasure of watching you walk past me, proud and excited in your black graduation robes. 
But between now and then, my job is to provide all the literacy tools and guidance to make sure you will be ready for what's next, be it college or career, and your job is to be willing to think, learn, and challenge yourself individually. And hopefully, we will also be able to have some fun and get to know each other in the process.
