I hope you had a wonderful summer break. I wanted to introduce myself and the resources on my blog. I am Mrs. Knox and I co-teach with Mrs. Clark (Social Studies) and Ms. Bonner (Science). I like to keep my blog simple, but useful. I post resources to help make you successful in 6th grade. You can visit my blog weekly for videos and study materials. Please use your Science or Social Studies teacher’s blog for daily updates and assignments. Feel free to message me on my blog if you have questions relating to assignments, assessments and projects.
I look forward to working with you this school year.
