Ms. Stooks ELA (English Language Arts)

Hello, my name is...

Ms. Kim Stooks

three books

I am an Arizona native; born in Tempe, Arizona, in 1965.  I received my teaching degree from Northern Arizona University in 1993, and my Master's Degree in 2003.  In other words, I have been teaching for a LONG time. 

I have five children ranging in ages from 14-28.  My son, Tyler, is a graduate of Central University in Iowa.  Elissa, 22 will be graduating from U of A in May, and has been hired as a financial analyst at Goldman Sachs in Salt Lake City, Utah.  William, 20, attends Paradise Valley Community College in Arizona.   Brittany, 28 lives in Chicago.  Alexis is my 14 year old.  She is currently a freshman at Thunderbird High School.
This is my sixth year teaching at Western Valley Middle School.  I LOVE teaching ELA, and look forward to coming to work every day.  I have high expectations of my students because I believe each one of them is capable of success.  My classes are challenging, and when students leave me for the new world of high school in May, they are more than ready to conquer 9th grade with confidence!
