8th Grade English Language Arts
Rm. 129
Welcome 8th grade scholars and parents to the 2017-2018 school year. My name is Monica McIver.  I have been teaching English Language Arts for over 11 years here at B.L. Gray.  I graduated from Sharyland High School and attended The University of Texas Pan American where I obtained my Bachelor's degree in English with a minor in Speech Communications.  I have two handsome and amazing young boys, ages 3 and 7.  I look forward to working with you and making this year exciting and memorable. Scholars, remember to always have an open mind, work hard, and READ everyday.  Keep in mind that whatever challenges come your way, we will work together to overcome them and be successful.
