Ms. Ami Giguere

Hi! I'm Ms. Giguere (pronounced: jig-air)

I am thrilled to begin my fourth year teaching and my fourth year here at Eisenhower Middle School. This year I am teaching 6th grade English Language Arts & Reading (ELAR) and ELAR Honors. 

I am looking forward to all of the possibilities this new school is going to bring and I cannot wait to embark on that journey with you as one of my students. We are all going to experience a learning curve, but I know if we are able to work through it together, we will all persevere. I will be there every step of the way to help support you.

I wholeheartedly believe in open and continuous lines of communication in order to ensure success in my class. I communicate regularly through Skyward messages  and quick reminders will be sent through Remind. Please check the codes below for Remind.

When I'm not in the classroom, I can usually be found spending time outside with my husband, our 3 kids, and 1 very active dog.

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have.
