It’s a new school year – which means plenty of new classes and a fresh start.

My name is Mrs. D. Washington, and I will be your student’s Reading/English-Language Arts teacher this school year. To tell you a little about myself, I am a graduate of Augusta State University with a Master of Arts in Teaching degree (Middle Grades Education 4th-8th grade) and Liberty University with an Education Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

Our classroom will function as a laboratory of learning, with classes consisting of whole classroom discussions, a wide variety of collaborative group projects, individual research and readings, writing assignments, informational text, grammar lessons, and so much more!

Students will be challenged to take charge of their education so that they may learn valuable skills that will benefit them throughout their lifetime in whatever path that they choose. Critical thinking, personal responsibility, and a strong work ethic are all ingredients to their enduring success both in and out of the classroom. It is my hope that we will work together as a team in order to ensure that your child becomes an independent lifelong learner.

I believe that communication is the key to a great parent-teacher relationship. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You can email me at dwashington@burke.k12.ga.us or call me at (706) 554-3532 (leave a message at the school and I will call you back ASAP).
