My name is Cristy Connellee and I teach 7th and 8th grade Reading here at NEMS. I am also one of the advisers for the NEMS student governement. I graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario Canada in 2006 with a major in English Language and Literature and a minor in Political Science. After moving to Michigan in 2008 I received my teaching certification from Western Michigan University. This is my fifth year teaching Language Arts here at NEMS.
My favorite thing to do when I'm not at school is to spend time with my family. My husband, Stephen, and I have two very active young sons, Noah, 5 and Eli, 3. Together we enjoy making our own adventures, being outdoors and Saturday Night hockey nights during the winter. Whenever I can fit it in between adventures I also love reading!
Please check this page regularly to support your student's success this year. I will post a daily calendar agenda along with study guides, class newsletters, links and other documents to help students succeed. This page is your source for information on all things 7th and 8th Grade Reading!
