Welcome to ELAR6!
Hello, my name is Mrs. Coryell and I am your 6th grade ELAR and Reading Acceleration teacher! I can't wait to work with you each day to improve your love of reading and writing as well as your skills! My number one goal for you is to find the perfect thing for you to read that will make you a more literate student.
This is my fourth year teaching at Driscoll Middle School - and my fourth year in San Antonio! - but I have been teaching middle school for 19 years. I am originally from Southern California and have spent my career teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English Language Arts, & Social Studies in Norwalk, California (near Los Angeles). I received both my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from California State University, Long Beach.
I have an amazing family who I love very much! I have a husband and two young daughters, Hannah who is 6 and Joanna who is 4. We also have three dogs - Chloe, Fiona, & Tiana. As a family, we love visiting National Parks, amusement parks (we seriously miss Disneyland), museums, and zoos.
I can't wait to get to know each one of you and your families!
