Hello and welcome to 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 teach Social Studies, ELA, and English 1.
I would like to use this opportunity to share a little about myself. My name is Melony Amerson, and this will be my ninth 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 twenty and attends ASU. Charlotte is fourteen and attends JCECA. 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 quick-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.
“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.
