All About Mrs. Heisler:

Greetings! Welcome to ninth grade English! This will be my thirteenth year teaching at MASH.  I graduated from Montoursville Area Senior High School (close to the Little League World Series).  I then received my undergraduate degree from Shippensburg University in 2007.  In 2013, I earned my Master's degree from Walden University in Adolescent Literacy and Technology.  I currently reside in Dillsburg, PA with my dear husband and two darling little ladies, ages seven and three-) I enjoy the beach, a good bargain, mystery thrillers, and listening to many different genres of music.  


9th Grade End of MP 3 Memo with MP4 Plan

Ninth Grade: Finishing up the 3rd Marking Period and Starting the 4th Marking Period Memo: (The following was posted to your son or daughter's Google Classroom page):

According to tonight's 3rd marking period email you or your parents have received, the 3rd marking period officially ended the day we left (March 13th). However, with that being said, I will still be counting the Modern Day Tragic Hero assignment to help bolster your grade. It’s not exactly extra credit, it just doesn’t harm people who chose not to do it, but it will help those people who did it if that makes sense? Because the majority of you have already completed it, those of you who have not and want the additional opportunity to increase your 3rd marking period grade have until April 9th to complete it and turn it in on Google Classroom. For those of you who think you’ve already done it, please go on Google Classroom and make sure you actually hit the “Turn in” button for the assignment by April 9th.
In addition, although not many of you participated in the enrichment activities the past few weeks, some of you did. I will be giving you up to an additional 20 points toward the 3rd marking period if you completed already or choose to complete at least 4 of the following tasks that were posted by April 13th: Essentially, you can get up to 5 points per task not to exceed 20 additional points.
-Participating in one or both of the posted discussions
-Playing Words with Friends with Me
-Reading one or both of the assigned NEWSELA articles AND taking the comprehension quiz at the end
We will officially start our 4th marking period on Monday April 6th. Please stay tuned for Monday’s announcement.
