Hello and welcome! My name is Soumi Chakraborti. This is my second year teaching 7th grade ELA in Dulles Middle School. Prior to joining the awesome team here at Dulles, I was a substitute teacher in Katy ISD and Spring Branch ISD. I have a Master’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of Calcutta, India. I have worked as a sub-editor in a university press in India.
As an educator, my primary goal this year include helping students develop a passion for reading and writing, as well as to encourage them to be and do their best, academically, socially and professionally. I want them to be life-long learners. I believe in life-long learning, so my aim is to revamp my instruction each year as I learn new tools and strategies. I also plan to complete a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and earn a Ph.D. I am learning new things every day from my wonderful colleagues and my awesome students. This motivates and excites me to improvise my skills and reach out to my students.
I have lived in the United States for the past twelve years. I live in Katy with my husband of twelve years, our two children, 10 year old boy, 7 year old girl and our very lovely Labrador puppy, Ducky. He is 15 months old.
When I am not teaching, I love to meet my friends and catch up on things I have missed. I love to read and write. My favorite classic is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I love to spend time with my family and our dog. I am excited to be a part of Dulles Middle School and its wonderful and diverse community. I look forward to a great academic year.
