My name is Kathy Romero and I teach 8th grade English, 8th grade Creative Writing, and mixed grades 6-8 Creative Writing. Welcome to my teacher space! 

I believe "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."  William Butler Yeats

My philosophy for teaching is centered on this quote. In our classroom, we foster respectful relationships centered on student success in all areas of life--academic, social, and individual. Curriculum is approached through the "lighting of a fire", encouraging questioning, discussion, and making connections to self.

I update my teacher space for the upcoming week by Sunday afternoon each week. Documents and tutorials are provided through links on the page. I also encourage you to access the additional tools noted to the right of your screen--Top Teen Reads, Vocabulary Flashcards, and MLA formatting resource.

Of course, contact me with any question or issue relevant to English or Creative Writing or student needs.
