Hello my name is Jacqueline Roberson. I have been teaching at Burke County Middle School for 7 years. I received my bachelor's degree from Augusta State University (Interrelated Education), my master's degree from Cambridge University (Teaching Skills and Methodology) and my specialist degree from Cambridge University (Curriculum and Instruction). I am an eighth grade inclusion and resource teacher with resource certification in the areas of English/language Arts, Reading and Social Studies. However, this year I will be working exclusively with English/language Arts.
This year your child will learn how to cite textual evidence, write objective summaries, and draw inferences from text; in addition to effectively using Standard English as evidenced by writing and/or speaking. Currently we are reading the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens written by Sean Covey. It is my desire that students will sincerely reflect upon the recommendations of the author and begin the journey of becoming an effective teen.
I set high expectations for my students and welcome all comments, suggestions and questions regarding your child’s progress. Please feel free to contact me via email by using the provided web page link or by (706) 554-3532. Also I invite you to visit during my planning hours of 8:05-9:20. Thank you in advance for your commitment and dedication to ensure your child’s academic success.
