Welcome to ELA!
Hello students, families, and guests! My name is Mrs. Jenna Charney, and I will be teaching 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts this year. This is my ninth year teaching here at Miami East.
After graduating as valedictorian of my class from Delta High School (Delta, Ohio), I went to Bowling Green State University to pursue my dream of becoming a teacher. In May 2011, I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a bachelor's degree in Middle Childhood Education (grades 4-9), specializing in Language Arts and Mathematics. I obtained my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction through the American College of Education in February 2017.
Outside of teaching, I also love to read, watch movies, and spend time with friends, my husband, and my son Finn, who will be turning 1 this October. Music is a major part of my life, having been a show choir and band member in high school, as well as a member of the Falcon Marching Band throughout college. I also love just listening to music and going to concerts. I am a member of the Miami County chapter of CISV, which has given me several opportunities to lead delegations of youth to international summer camps. I also spend time in the summers teaching summer day camps at the Toledo Zoo. This is a great job for me, because it combines my love of teaching with my love of animals!
I hope that this website helps you stay connected with our class from your own computer. Here, you will be able to find information about our classroom operations, long-term projects, and other valuable information for our class. Also, don't forget to check out Progress Book to keep an eye on your student's progress throughout the year.
I am very excited to work with each and every student and parent and cannot wait to see what this year will bring!
