Mrs. Melanie Sturr
My name is Melanie Sturr and this is my 21st year teaching. I am very excited about coming back to Terrace and teaching 8th grade! I have 5 sons, two granddaughters and two grandsons. I have two BA degrees - one in English Literature and one in Communications from Mills College in Oakland, CA and earned my teaching credential at Cal State East Bay. I have taught every grade level K-8, and I have worked as a Reading Intervention Specialist for a private company in Fresno.
I miss you all so much! Make sure that you are checking on Google Classroom for the latest assignments!
This year, the students will read two novels, “The House on Mango Street” and “Refugee”. Additionally, the students will write a screenplay, take part in filming selected student screenplays, and develop a website from research. English in 8th grade focuses on the California state standards.
