Welcome to 7th grade English! I am Mrs. Sheridan and I teach English on the Elkhorn Team. I am a Montana native but grew up in Los Angeles, California. I returned to Montana to attend Carroll College and fell in love with Helena. I started teaching at CRA in 1996 and have been here ever since! I completed my Masters Degree in 2002 in Learning Development. My husband is Mr. Sheridan and he teaches 8th grade at CRA.  We have three daughters Sydney, 22, Jaymee, 20, and Katie, 18. In my free time, I enjoy trail running, hiking with my family, and watching sports.

Academics: We will focus on reading and responding to reading through writing in English. We will be using Common Lit, which is an amazing resource that will allow us to practice our reading, writing, and communication skills! When students leave my classroom, I want them to be more effective writers and communicators!

Social/Emotional: Middle School is also about the developmental milestones of independence, friendships, problem solving, and learning to do hard things. I hope to partner with you and your child to help as they walk through this journey. Growth is a process. It is important that we are patient, present and support the difficult times. As we work together, we will help provide the resilience they will need for future success.

It is important we remember that all kids bloom at different times, and we get to be a part of helping them grow and become their best selves.

I look forward to working with you all this year! The links below will help you to support your child at home.

Please communicate with me if you have any concerns.
