Best time to call: before or after school
Hi! My name is Mrs. Ranaweera. I am a graduate of U. C. Davis with a double major in Political Science and English. In my free time I enjoy running, snowboarding, golfing, yoga, and of course watching soccer.
I teach 7th and 8th grade English and A.V.I.D. at Walters. I enjoy helping students learn about the variety of options they have for colleges, as well as help them acquire the necessary skills to get into the competitive four-year University. A.V.I.D. allows me to do this.
I enjoy reading literature and facilitating stimulating discussions with my bright 8th grade students at Walters Junior High. My goal is to equip my students with the requisite tools to problem-solve and think critically about the world around them. I try to ignite a passion in my students to ask questions and to express themselves, both formally and creatively, in their writing. The state standards I teach include listening, speaking, reading, and writing, and can be found on the English Department webpage. Thank you for visiting my page. I am very much looking forward to the rest of the school year with the wonderful students and staff at Walters Junior High!
