Meet the Teacher
Mr. Michael Martin
ELA is taught with an emphasis on grammar, including parts of speech, sentence structure, and punctuation. With an understanding of correct grammar, students are able to clearly convey their thoughts through their writing. Additionally, through literature, students are exposed to a variety of authors and literary genres.
Middle school students participate in spelling bees through which they may qualify for the Scripps Spelling Bee competitions. Students are also given opportunities to compete in writing competitions through local and national organizations.
