Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
Welcome to 8th Grade English Language Arts. My name is Gwen Glover. This will be my 19th year in education and my 4th year at OTMS. I earned my Bachelors in Elementary Education at the University of Southern Mississippi and my Masters of Education at William Carey University. I am certified in English, Reading, Social Studies, Special Education, and School Counseling. I have taught in classrooms ranging from Pre-K to adult during my 18 years in education. I have 2 daughters, one currently working on her Masters at LSU and another attending Ridgeland High. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, football and supporting my daughters and granddaughter in all that they do.
CANVAS: This year, students will work primarily in CANVAS, our online teaching and communicating tool. Each student should or will have access to CANVAS. Students will need to access CANVAS daily for assignments and communication.
Parents: Please encourage students to come to school or access CANVAS everyday prepared to participate and collaborate.
Students: Self-discipline and self-control will play important roles in your ability to be successful in school this year. Let's be prepared everyday and ready to participate, learn, and grow! :-)
Our classroom mantra for 2020-2021:
WORKING TOGETHER WE WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESSFUL SCHOOL YEAR!
