Mrs. Carrie Locke
Hello! I am so glad you are my student!
My name is Mrs. Carrie Locke, and I will be your Sixth Grade Language Arts teacher this year. I am so excited that I have the chance to spend time with you every day. We will get to know each other very well this year. Here is a little about me to help you feel more comfortable.
I grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and I lived there for almost thirty years before moving to a little town Searcy, Arkansas. I lived there for only two years and then moved to Monument, CO! This is the best place to live!!
I have taught Language Arts for a long time, and I still love it- 8th grade, 1 year—7th grade, 3 years—6th grade 12 years. I truly love to teach my students how to write and read even better, and I have a ton of fun, creative ways for you to learn!
I ABSOLUTELY love football, especially the Denver Broncos! Dolphins and cats are my favorite animals and blue is the best color, in my opinion. I love hiking with my dog, Echo, and reading great books with my cat, Shade, laying on my lap.
I have a husband named Dave and three kids. My oldest, Tyler, is in 12th grade at PRHS and my twins, Ryan and Brenna, are in 8th grade this year at LPMS. My family is awesome and I love spending time with them.
I understand that sixth grade can be pretty overwhelming at times. Please feel free to come in before school or after school to get extra help. Parents are always welcome too! I can be easily reached on my email firstname.lastname@example.org-- and will answer any questions you might have as soon as possible.
As your beloved LA teacher, I will do my part to help you be successful this year, but in return, I expect you to try your best, work hard, and stay organized.
We are going to have such a wonderful year together! Get ready!!!
Sincerely, Mrs. Locke

I love making each week look similar so that everyone knows what to expect and understands my classroom routine. Over my sixteen years of teaching, I have found that when students know what to expect, they tend to do much better. However, this weekly schedule is subject to change depending on interruptions with school days (i.e. snow days/delayed starts/assemblies.)
