Ms. Ami Giguere
Hi! I'm Ms. Giguere (pronounced: jig-air).
I am thrilled to begin my third year teaching and my third year here at Eisenhower Middle School. This year I am teaching 6th grade English Language Arts & Reading (ELAR) and ELAR Honors. I am also co-sponsor for Student Council.
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 doing yard work or attempting a diy home renovation with my husband and 3 kids.
Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have.
Students are required to have a composition journal that they keep in class. They are also to bring a book to class every day. Books can be checked out at the library before school, after school, and occasionally during lunches.
