Message to Parents & Guardians

Hello Parents and Guardians,

My name is Morgan Durham and I am so excited that I will be working with your child as a recovery specialist and reading intervention instructor. I will be there the rest of the year to ensure students are receiving the support they need to succeed in their learning. I graduated from UNA in May 2020. I have my teaching certification in secondary English Language Arts (ELA). I have also worked as a substitute teacher for the past few years! I am ecstatic to start this journey of knowledge acquisition with your young one. I am passionate about the ELA content area, but my teaching philosophy primarily focuses of classroom community and relationships. I cannot wait to get to know your child and I look forward to us learning from one another.

My role is to ensure that your child succeeds. I will be building lesson plans and activities, assisting students individually, and working on significant growth in targeted areas. I have built this website to open lines of communication, not only to students, but with you as well. My extended bio, past work, and other information can be found throughout the site. I plan on updating the site as we move through the semester. Students will be encouraged (not required) to offer feedback on how I am doing. I love receiving student feedback! There is no better way to know how you are doing as a teacher than to ask the students directly.

Please, feel free to look around the website, read and comment on the blogs, and explore the updates as we move through the rest of the school year. If you have any questions or concerns, or would just like to reach out and get to know me better, please feel free to contact me! I am elated to be in your child's classroom and I cannot wait for us to learn together.
