Welcome to 6th Grade Language Arts!

Our curriculum is determined by the Georgia Standards of Excellence.  Each day, students will be learning or extending their skills in the areas of grammar, reading, writing, and vocabulary.  Any homework assignments or links to resources can be found using the calendar link or useful links to the left of this web page. 


The 2018-2019 school year will be my eighteenth year of teaching, thirteen of which have been at Heard County Middle School.  My family enjoys living in Heard County and being part of such a great community.  Prior to moving to Heard County, our family resided for a few years in Randolph County and also lived in Carroll County for several years.  My husband, Rev. Scott Googe, and I are both from Carroll County.  He is a 1989 Central graduate while I graduated from Bowdon in 1995.  Our three blessings are students at Heard County Elementary, Heard County Middle, and Heard County High.  My favorite time of year is fall when we spend all our time at football games, fall festivals, and family gatherings.  I love God, my family, my friends, my community, snowmen, cross-stitching, and reading great books.
