Hello and welcome to the Mrs. Amerson’s eighth grade classes. I hope that you will have a great year. I am excited to have you in my class, and look forward to an engaging and rewarding year. I want to introduce you to the importance of active citizen participation in American society and the appreciation of literature, reading and writing, improved speaking and listening skills, and comprehension to help you begin to think critically about the world, and your contributions to it. My classes are fun and challenging, but I do require effort and commitment.
I would like to use this opportunity to share a little about myself. My name is Melony Amerson, and this will be my eighth year at Archer Lodge. I have taught social studies and English for twenty-seven years in a variety of settings, including middle and high school environments. I live in Wendell with my husband and our two children. Emmanuel is nineteen and attends ASU. Charlotte is thirteen, and in the 8th grade at ALMS. We enjoy hiking, traveling, and hanging out in the mountains. Our favorite places to visit are Colorado, Louisiana, and Texas. We also have a small farm with a huge garden, two goats, and honey bees.
I am looking forward to a very exciting year as a Gator. I anticipate much growth and maturity by the end of the year. This is such a quickly paced growing time for you; I hope that I do not miss any important events that occur as you prepare for your next educational experience in high school. Please keep me informed.
As with any relationship, good communication is most important. I intend to make this a valued learning experience for all of us as we grow together. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about assignments or student conduct. My webpage is updated weekly, I use Remind, and most student handouts are available google classroom. Cooperation, good communication and positive attitudes at home and school will make this school year successful.
“You give a poor man a fish and you feed him for a day. You teach him to fish and you give him an occupation that will feed him for a lifetime.” (Chinese proverb.)
Thank you for sharing your blessings with me. I hope they turn out to be great fishers.
Mrs. Melony Amerson
