Welcome to 6th Grade ELA!

  • Welcome to the start of a brand new school year! Life as we kow it has changed so drastically. We're still navigating this "new normal," but we are all in it together and supporting each other.

    This past school year I was one of ther permanent Substitute Teachers at Horbelt. This year, I am honored to be teaching 6th Grade ELA! I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of such a dynamic school. This is going to be a great year! We will be reading and analyzing poems, short stories, narratives, and other literary works. We will also be working on our own literary works.

    My goal is to create an environment where the students feel comfortable expresssing themselves and where they can gain confidence in their individual abilities. I believe this is a group effort and that communication is key in the success of the students. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns, especially if it will assist in this goal. I can be reached via email at syokum@barnegatschools.com and phone at 609-660-7500.

    Again, I am so excited for a great school year and am looking forward to working with you all!
