congratulations on the completion of the 2019-2020 school year!
Our ninth and tenth grade students have spent the past couple of months reading, reflecting, and writing. A few of us decided to put together an e-zine of our writing created during quarantine. We called it our Quarantimes. Give us a read!
This is our space to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and reflect on the themes of our course. Adding content and sharing has never been easier! We will build the knowledge on this site together by contributing to online discussions, sharing our research, and through creating and and posting to your personal online portfolio sites as a way to showcase our course creations.
Overall, this site should help us reflect on the themes course, celebrate our accomplishments, and streamline how we learn and share information.
An interest in helping young people discover and define their writing voice and reading interests drives Ms. Jennifer Ward to cultivate a student-centered learning environment, one that supports individual learning goals and incorporates purposeful use of technology.

In March 2016, she was named a TED-Ed Innovative Educator and is also a Google Certified Innovator, National Writing Project Consultant, and a 2014 PASCD Emerging Leader. Ms. Ward taught for 13 years in a Philadelphia suburban district and returned to her home state in 2015. Most recently, she taught at Ionia High School.
