“When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young.”
Welcome to the new year! My name is Mr. Rocha. I will be the 6th grade Language Arts teacher at South Loop. This will be my second year at South Loop and I am looking forward to starting the year off right. Students can look forward to opening activities that will help everyone get to know one another during our first week and soon enough we will be diving into our first unit of the year as we engage with short stories!
