All English Language Arts students will be studying ACT/SAT vocabulary words.

The students will then have a review test every 5-6 weeks.  To help students study for this test, a quizlet has been set up online.  The quizlet is updated with the new words each week.  I would encourage the students to start studying this now rather than later.  The quizlet allows the students to study from a computer or other electronic device.  It’s a good way to study while riding in the car or waiting for someone to get done with basketball!  

Angela Tuma

Hello!  My name is Angela Tuma, and I am excited to be teaching Language Arts at Aspen Middle School!  I have my undergraduate in Elementary Education with Middle School Language Arts from Minnesota State University, Mankato, and my Masters Degree in Curriculum Instruction with a K-12 Reading license from my Concordia St. Paul.  I have previously taught in Lakeville, Chaska, and Burnsville school districts in both elementary and middle school classrooms.  I currently live in Prior Lake with my husband (Bob), two girls (Elizabeth, 12; and Lexi, 10), and a cat, Hailey.  I love to read, shop at Barnes and Noble and Herberger's, and LOVE University of Kansas basketball!  I am excited to get to know all of the students, and begin a wonderful year here at Aspen Middle School!
