Middle School Language Arts

Welcome to English! You have become part of an exciting and challenging class that will test your abilities. This class will be interesting, time consuming, and even entertaining at times! I believe that students learn more when they are actively involved in the class. Do not hesitate to come to me at any time for help and advice. I am here to help you be successful! I am available to discuss your schoolwork before and after school, and during my planning periods. I am looking forward to a wonderful year!

Hello! I’m Mrs. Jeanette Connally, and I teach middle school English and Composition. My husband, Joseph, and I reside in Mobile, and we attend St. Dominic Catholic Church. I grew up in south-central Alabama, and graduated as the salutatorian from South Choctaw Academy in 2002. I received my teaching degree from the University of Mobile, where I graduated with honors in 2011. I am currently pursuing my masters degree in English from Spring Hill College. Teaching has been my passion and my vocation for the past six years. In addition to my classes, I am also the 6A homeroom sponsor and the Eagle Theatre program director. I am looking forward to having another amazing year here at SDCS!

Sixth grade is an exciting year for all of us. In addition to having new teachers, new schedules, and new routines to get used to, we have field trips and activities each year, including the Blue Angels in Pensacola and the Jewish Film Festival.

My classroom is an exciting yet challenging learning environment that provides all with an opportunity to learn, excel, and grow, not only as writers, but also as servants and missionaries of Christ. The curriculum is designed to challenge their abilities and build on the foundations already begun in elementary school. Students are expected to be able to master the skills presented and apply them in their writing. The class covers a wide variety of topics including grammar, vocabulary, poetry, and composition.

In order to establish a safe learning environment, students are to obey the rules set forth in the handbook, and are expected to be polite, respectful, diligent, punctual and organized. Positive and negative aspects of students performance will be noted and reports will be sent home as needed to parents.

Assignments are discussed each Monday and posted online. Students should maintain their planners to stay informed of important dates. It is very important to me that this school year be a team effort.  Parents play an extremely important and active role in their child’s education.  Please check online often for progress in class, news, homework, or any other announcements.  If your student struggles with anything, or you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at jconnally@stdominicmobile.org.
