Hello my name is Jacqueline Young. I have been teaching at Burke County Middle School for 10 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 a seventh grade English/Language Arts inclusion and English/Language Arts 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. It is my desire that students will sincerely reflect upon the themes of nonfiction texts and apply the author's intended messages towards becoming 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 :10-10:15. Thank you in advance for your commitment and dedication to ensure your child’s academic success.
