Welcome to our class! Here you will find a lot of information you will need for Dolphin’s English class at Smithfield Middle School. Check back regularly for information.
I am Mrs. LaNeave. I am happily married to my hubby and we have two beautiful kids, Nate (May 2008) and Madi (May 2011). Our kiddos actually have the same birthday!
I grew up in Hampton Roads (for the most part—Navy brat!). I graduated from Radford University in 2002 with my English B.A. and a minor in Spanish. I actually studied abroad in Costa Rica and tok college courses down there!
I began teaching in September 2002 at a small school in southwest Virginia called Woodlawn School (not called this anymore), where I taught kindergarten. Since the fall of 2003, I have been teaching seventh grade English. I taught for six years in Chesapeake and I moved to Isle of Wight schools in 2009 and love it! It is convenient to our home.
In December 2009, I earned my M. Ed. as a Reading Specialist through the University of Virginia.
I love to read and have a classroom library of over 1500 books! We also have a cozy reading nook with the much-sought-after beanbag chair area. Stop by to see it sometime!
