Mrs. Ashley Ringwood
Welcome to 7th grade Language Arts! I am excited to be working with you for the 2020/2021 school year. I am a graduate of Eastern Michigan University with a degree in Secondary Education (Social Studies and Economics concentration). My teaching career started in my hometown of Detroit, Michigan where I taught high school Social Studies and Economics. An opportunity then moved me to Phoenix, Arizona where I have spent the past 5 years teaching middle school Social Studies and English. I look forward to starting my 7th year of teaching here at Swift Creek with all of you!
This course will primarily be based on Google Classroom. We will also be utilizing Google Meets in order for students to receive live instruction from myself and other teachers on the team. Please check PowerSchool and Google Classroom frequently to stay on top of your studies.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. You can contact me by phone, email, or attend office hours. Communication is key for a successful school year!

All materials that students need will be posted on Google Classroom.
Please encourage your child to check Google Classroom daily, participate in class, and turn in assignments on time.
