    Hello!  My name is Mrs. Tracey Hess, and I will be your / your child's English 8 Skills, English 8, or English 8 Honors teacher.  I also am the Publications / Yearbook teacher / adviser this year.  I am a graduate of Slippery Rock University where I attained a Secondary Education English degree, and later I attended the University of Pittsburgh.  Here I received my Reading Specialist Certification, grades K-12.  After my graduation from college, I was hired at Fort Cherry Jr./Sr. High School, teaching primarily 8th and 9th grade English and Creative Writing for almost ten years.  During that time, I started a family and had three great kids, Lauren, Ryan, and Jason!  After my third child was born, I decided to leave teaching temporarily to focus on my family, a decision I will never regret.  I got to experience education from a parent's point of view, and I really gained a great perspective on what's important in my children's lives.  When my youngest son entered first-grade full time, I decided to ease my way back into teaching on a part-time basis by becoming a Reading Tutor (grades 9-12) at Fort Cherry.  Then in 2009, I was rehired as a full-time teacher once again, teaching primarily 9th grade English.  Now I am back where I started teaching 8th grade, a position I am very excited to teach again.  Please feel free to contact me easily through e-mail at thess@fortcherry.org or at the Jr. Sr. High School at 724-796-1551.  Thank you, and I look forward to a great year with you all.
