Deshotel, Sara

Welcome to Sixth Grade ELA! 

My name is Sara Deshotel and I will be teaching your child ELA for the 2021-22 school year. We will read 3 books this year and learn all aspects of literary elements and writing skills.  To ensure that your child reaches their full potential we need to work together (teacher/student/parent). Working together requires that you know about my class so we will be able to develop a strong and helpful working relationship that includes communicating clearly and consistently. I want to make sure your child receives the best education that will help him/her succeed now and in the future. To do this, I need you to read and discuss with your child the following procedures and expectations for the year.


The books we will be reading are: 1) Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse, 2) Hatchet by Gary Paulson, and 3) If Stones Could Speak by Marc Aronson. All students will be provided their books.
