Hello! Welcome to 7th grade English - formerly known as language arts. My name is pronounced Paik (pack). This marks my 30th year of teaching for the Prince William county. I have worked with grades kindergarten through 9th grade. In my free time, I LOVE to pick up a good book, especially mysteries, and read for hours. Reading for me is like watching a movie develop in my brain. I am married, have three children, a dog, and a parakeet. When I am not teaching school lessons, I like to be at the beach with my toes in the sand! 

I am hopeful, even though we are virtual this first quarter, that we will be able to learn and develop our reading and writing skills. I will certainly put in the effort - I am counting on you to do the same thing!

Remember, the more you read, the more you understand. The more you understand, the farther in life you will go!
