Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!
Welcome to 8th Grade English Language Arts. My name is Gwen Glover. This will be my 19th year in education and my 5th 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 19 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 use Canvas as a part of our class as well as a variety of other resources. 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 everyday prepared to participate and collaborate.
Students: Self-discipline and self-control will play important roles in your ability to be successful in my class this year. Let's be prepared everyday and ready to participate, learn, and grow! :-)
Our classroom mantra for 2021-2022:
WORKING TOGETHER WE WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESSFUL SCHOOL YEAR! WE WILL WIN!
