How can a voice be heard?

Welcome to Mr. Pizzuto's  ELA Class!

Welcome, Students of 8 Gold 2014-2015!

I have designed this site to support you as we go through our many experiences this year... feel free to explore the many pages and links, and let me know if you find something you feel I should add, or a link that no longer works, etc.  This page is for you, so your input is much appreciated.

Over the coming year, I will push you - as will 8 Gold as a whole.  On team, you will have the opportunity to climb a mountain, to walk 20 miles... these challenges, coupled with the academic ones, are designed to get you to see yourself in new ways. 

One of the most vital skills a person can have is the ability to really look in the mirror - to recognize one's strengths and weaknesses, and use both to develop into a better person.  I will push you in class because I truly believe you are capable of reaching that next level.  I will be here to help you when you struggle, and to help you reach that next milestone.

So, trust in yourself and your abilities, and let's take those first steps together.

Good luck, and please let me know if you need any help.
