Bartlett Ninth Grade Academy

Morgan Smith » Home


Hi Panther! Welcome to the wonderful world of high school!!

My name is Morgan Smith and I teach English. I am thrilled to be a part of the Bartlett family here at the 9th Grade Academy. I am from Bartlett, I live in Bartlett, and I work in Bartlett, so the community is very important to me. We are doing new, great things and I am excited to be a part of it!

I am looking forward to a fabulous year in the classroom. In English we will explore rich literature and different writing techniques, while preparing for the state assessment in May. Standard and Honors will both follow the same curriculum, with Honors delving deeper in the the material and reaching higher expectations. Please be aware that Honors English is challenging for many students - hang in there! Be committed and be open to new experiences.

You will be issued your fabulous 1:1 device later in August. Once that has been issued you MUST bring it - charged - everyday. If you do not come into class prepared, you will swiftly fall behind.

Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns. We are a team and we are in this together! I'm excited for a fantastic school year.
