Hello! My name is Angela Collis and I absolutely love teaching at Ronald Reagan Middle School! I was born and raised in Northern Virginia. I graduated from George Mason University with a Bachelor's degree in English and I have a Master's Degree from George Mason University in Secondary English Curriculum and Instruction. 

8th Grade Language Arts is the pinnacle of middle school Language Arts education. It encompasses all of the skills that students learned in 6th and 7th grade LA but takes it up a level. This year, students are doing a lot of higher order thinking and analysis. The class is structured so that students have time to read and write every day in class, but of course are encouraged to do so at home as well. Out goal is to equip students with a solid foundation of reading and writing skills that they carry on to high school and build upon.
