• Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at Starr-Iva Middle School. As your child’s seventh-grade ELA teacher, I am looking forward to a productive and exciting year. During the coming year, we will focus on English Language Arts as we create poetry, short stories, narrative essays, dramas, friendly and business letters, journal entries, and a research paper. Each assignment will also emphasize necessary writing skills such as grammar and correct spelling. Throughout the year, we will also be developing better skills to enhance comprehension and enjoyment of fiction, literary nonfiction, and informational texts.

    Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions you may have. My email address is pinsonm@anderson3.k12.sc.us. I look forward to working with you as we provide a positive learning experience for your child.
