Ms. Michaela James

Hi all! I'm Michaela James, and I am excited for my third year at Plano Senior. This will be my fifth year in education and third year at the high school level. Journalism has been a passion of mine for years, and I can't wait to show my students all of the opportunities that can come from journalism.

My goal for my students academically is to increase their confidence in writing, reporting, photography and design. Most importantly, when my students leave my class, I want them to feel prepared for anything life throws at them.

Please feel free to contact me by phone or email with any questions or concerns.
