802

Welcome to Room 802!

Junior High Literature and Religion

My name is Amanda Herrera. This is my 2nd year at OLMM. I teach 7th and 8th grade Literature and 8th Grade Religion. My goal this year is to help all students succeed academically, socially, and spiritually. I will be working with students to help strengthen their reading and comprehension skills as well as providing them with ways to deepen their Catholic faith. I am very excited for this year!

Palacio, The Giver by Lois Lowry, and The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.

Religion:

In this course, students will analyze Bible Scriptures, recognize the Ten Commandments and Corporal/Spiritual Works of Mercy as guidelines for living a good life, and identify major periods in the Bible and in the history of the Catholic Church.
