Hello, my name is Vernette Conrod. I am a proud Cumberland Academy Middle school, 8th grade Reading teacher and the proud parent of a Cumberland Academy High 10th grader.
This 2017-2018 school year marks my 25th year to teach. This is my second year at Cumberland Academy. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication from University of Texas Tyler. I am certified to teach English Language Arts and Reading, Speech Communications, and English as a Second Language.
My expectations are for ALL students to reach a high standard for learning. Each student will be expected in my class to ready to learn. This course focuses on the continued development of Reading skills. Those skills will also include the English Language Arts skills of writing, grammar, and higher order thinking skills necessary for STAAR readiness and advancement to the 9th grade.
I am very excited to serve as one of the sponsors for National Junior Honor Society at Cumberland Academy Middle School.
