Ms. Ami Giguere

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

I am thrilled to begin my second year teaching and my second year here at Eisenhower Middle School. This year I am teaching 6th grade English Language Arts & Reading (ELAR), ELAR Honors, and 6th grade Reading Workshop. 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 and Google Classroom. Quick reminders will be sent through Remind. Please check the codes below for Google Classroom and 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.
