     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!
