Welcome to 8th Grade!
Step into the 8th grade classroom and you will discover excitement, energy, and a love for Christ. My mission is to love each student as Christ would have me do and to teach with passion. My goal is to develop young adults who are God centered, patriotic, and servant minded. You will discover the 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th grade studying history, exploring God’s presence in history, and connecting the past to today. At other times, you will observe 8th grade students reading, working on various projects, or developing writing skills. At anytime, you are welcome to join us in life’s educational journey!

Finally, we will spend a few months in the spring preparing for a class play, which will include acting, designing sets, and choosing costumes. This tradition is a fun and exciting way to end the year and bring their time together at St. Gregory’s to a close.
