So who is Miss. Santoyo?

I am a proud graduate of Eastern Illinois University with a B.A in education with a middle school emphasis.  I have been teaching language arts at CSMS for 3 years.  I teach a section of 6th, 7th and 8th grade L.A all in one day. Needless to say, I love it. I especially love the variety of literature that runs through my fingers on a daily basis.  

When time allows, I enjoy knitting, baking and cuddling up with my cat and reading a good book.  When the weather is warm, you will find me canoeing, biking, and walking the trails.  Plus, nothing beats reading a good book underneath the shade of a big tree!  


Here is a list of a few of my favorite young adult novels:

The Giver by Lois Lowry

Fade by Robert Cormier

Animal Farm by George Orwell

Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
