• Meet Mrs. Hegge

    Hi Novastar students! Welcome to 8th grade on the Novastar team. I am excited to be your English Language Arts teacher this year.  This will be my eighth year teaching at Hershey Middle School.  I am a proud graduate of Penn State University, and I bleed blue and white.  You will see this as soon as you walk into my classroom.  I love all things Penn State!   

    I love teaching 8th grade, and I am looking forward to this school year.  I am a believer in using technology in the classroom to enrich whatever we are studying.  You can expect to use your iPad on a regular basis.  During the first week of school we will take time setting up your Edmodo account, organizing your Google Docs, creating some expectations for our classroom, and setting some goals for the school year.  The first unit we will dive into will be Building Bridges in which we will explore a variety of fiction and nonfiction texts and begin our journey through the writing process.  I hope this makes you as excited as I am to start out the school year!

    As the school year marches on we will get to know more and more about each other.  I am looking forward to this!  Remember to always ask questions, think critically, and develop a love of learning.  I can't wait to meet each of you!
