Hello, Woodworth family! My name is James Murphy, and I am your student’s new 7th grade World History teacher. I am extremely pleased to be into my 3rd year with the Dearborn School District. A little bit about me: I am a husband and father and bring 15 years teaching experience to my classroom. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Madonna University and a Master’s Degree from the University of Detroit Mercy.
In my classroom, students will work on vocabulary, writing, and reading skills. Each student is expected to come prepared to learn with all his or her supplies needed for each task. You can help your student by helping them find a quiet place at home to read and timing them during this reading time. Each week will always end with some type of summative assessment.
Students will need to bring in the following supplies: a 2” or 3” 3 ring binder designated for English class (this will come to and from home/school); pencils and/or pens; and lined paper. If there is a financial issue please feel free to contact me to make other arrangements.
Students and parents can access our class website on the Dearborn iLean Website: https://moodle.dearbornschools.org/login/index.php
Log in with your student’s student ID and password. Homework, Lessons, Class Agendas, and Tests can be found on iLearn. It is updated daily and grades are put in the the Gradebook system weekly.
Thank you for your ongoing support, and I look forward to working with you to make this a fantastic year for your student!
