Hello and welcome to my ELA and writing class! 
A Little About Me: 
I have been teaching ELA here at RSMS since 2003.   I love reading and seeing students get into a book.  I hold a Bachelor's degree from MTSU and a Master's in Instructional Technology from Lipscomb University.  My goal is to one day have a paper free classroom and have students one to one with technology. 
Mrs. James's Summer Reading Log
Title Author My Rating
 The Wild Robot Peter Brown  
Paperboy Vince Vawter 3- easy, quick read; some action
Three Black Swans Caroline Cooney  4- very interesting for girls and/or twins/triplets
The Face on the Milk Carton Caroline Cooney 4- thought provoking, but a series to be read
Restart Gordon Korman 4- interesting concept, but slow at times 
Where She Went (sequel to If I Stay) Gayle Forman FOR AN OLDER (High school) AUDIENCE
The 5th Wave Rick Yancey For a HIGH School audience (choice language)
