Ms. Locha N. Wms-Brooks
Greetings Students and Parents,
My name is Locha Williams-Brooks. Welcome back to Kennemer Middle School! I’m so excited to introduce myself to you and your family as one of the members to the English Department. This year I will serve as your student’s 8th Grade English teacher.
For last four years I served as an English Language Arts Instructor at Hazelwood Central High School in St. Louis, Missouri. Prior to that I served three years as an In-School Suspension Coordinator at Hazelwood Central Middle School. This is currently my fifth year teaching English in my educational career. I graduated from Harris-Stowe State University (the only HBCU in St. Louis :) ) with my Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education-English content and from Lindenwood University with a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. As you can see I'm new to Texas.
My goal for this year is to work very hard with my students to give them the proper English foundation to help them excel and prepare them for their high school career and beyond. In order for this to be a successful school year students and parents I want your full support. Parents please encourage your student to always do their very best. I have high expectations for my students, and my main goal is student achievement. Students I’m asking that you come to class prepared each and every day to learn with an open mind and a great attitude. We will make learning as fun as possible while focusing on our overall goals
I have a commitment to making sure that my classroom materials are culturally relevant and responsive to my students. I'm open to working with students, parents, staff, and community members in order to enhance our students learning experiences.
Aside from teaching our nations future leaders and entrprenuers I love spending time with my two sons Pharoah and Sire. Our family loves to eat and travel. Any time we travel we eat. I'm not sure if I mentioned how much we love to travel :) I also enjoy reading and learn new information.
