Welcome to Mr. Roberts's 8th Grade ELA classroom page.
My belief is that every student has the Potential to Learn. All students have Intelligence and Creativity beyond their current understanding at this point. Fear of failure and Indifference have robbed too many of our Wonderful Students from being all they can be and doing all that they can do. They are full of Amazing Talents and Gifts but along their journey through school, they may have become jaded. My Goal is to Encourage, Inspire and Educate. Students can and will do Tremendous things once they believe they can and once they care again. My Task is to help them get there.
As an Educator , I am going into my Eighteenth year in the classroom. My first eight years were in Bedford County at Harris Middle School. The last ten years have been in Rutherford County. Three years at Central Middle and the last seven years here at LMS. I was a boys and girls soccer coach for 10 years. Seven in Bedford County and Three in Rutherford County.
I consider myself a student focused educator and I desire to help nurture students into life long learners. To love themselves and others, respect ,appreciate their parents and guardians and always try their best in every situation they will face.
