Ms. Michaela James

Hi all! I'm Michaela James, and I am thrilled to be joining Wildcat Nation this year. I am so excited to be starting my third year in education. Previously, I taught at the elementary level, but I am ready to take on the world of senior high. 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. In my classroom, we learn from our mistakes and always support one another.
