Welcome to 8th grade Language Arts and Literature and 7th Grade Language Arts for the 2018-2019 Academic Year!
Please note the change in school times this year. First period begins with morning prayer at 7:47 am.
I am Ms. Peel and I am honored to be your English teacher this year. This is my fourth year at St. Thomas More Catholic School and my 30th year in education. My experience in a variety of districts has allowed me to work with a diverse body of students and has fostered in me an appreciation for different cultures and perspectives. To sum up my educational philosophy, I believe that each student has the ability to learn, achieve and meet individual goals and expectations; at STM, these expectations and goals are rooted in faith and tradition. As I begin the year, I am excited to get to know each of my students and to work with each one so that all of my students have a satisfying spiritual, academic and personal experience.
On a personal note, when I am not preparing for school, I enjoy reading, exercising, and traveling. I am married and have three grown sons, one of whom serves in the military, and one BIG dog.
Please feel free to contact me (email is best!) if you have any questions or concerns.
