Hello, and welcome, everyone! My name is Ms. Williams (she/her), and this is my first year at Global Arts Plus. I am so excited to teach 7th-grade ELA, Foundations, and Creative Writing this year! My Foundations, 4rd and 7th hours are cotaught with Ms. Elaraby and my 5th and 6th hours are cotaught with Ms. Bukovich.
I live in South Minneapolis with one roommate and my two kittens, Banjo and Clover. They're best friends and love to make appearances in our video chats, so get ready to see some kitty mischief! Outside of school, I like to go on walks, cook, read, work in my garden, watch movies, and knit. I also love arts and crafts and teaching myself new things, so I pick up new hobbies pretty often!
The best way to contact me is through email or my Google Meet office hours. Please reach out if you have any questions for me; I'll always do my best to respond to emails quickly. I love connecting with families and am thrilled to join the Global Arts Plus community, so don't hesitate to contact me.
