Mr. Jay Wordsman
Language Arts, Reading, and English
Originally from Queens, NY, Mr. Wordsman has been teaching at Valley
Middle School since September of 1993. In addition to his duties as an
8th grade teacher of language arts, English, and reading, Mr. Wordsman directs
the Seventh/Eighth Grade Drama Club, serves as the Graduation Coordinator and
the Athletic Director, and coaches the girls' basketball team (19 seasons,
162-77), as well as the VMS track squad.
My goal for all my classes is for each student to gain an appreciation as
well as an understanding of the subject matter taught. In addition, I
expect my 8th graders to be well-prepared for High School English.
