    Our Classroom Mission
    The mission of our eighth grade language arts classroom is to improve class and E.O.G. reading test scores, writing skills, receive an excellent education towards a successful college career, read more books than last year, increase a healthy lifestyle, and earn respect from teachers and peers. We will strive to meet these ambitions in order to earn a greater sense of pride from our family, friends, and ourselves. We will reach these mission standards by reading challenging literature, taking notes in class, listening to the teacher, making good choices, practicing new learning strategies, writing and studying at home, focusing on lesson goals, and participating more in class. We will use this mission statement as our daily code towards success.

    About Me - Ms. Sursi

    Hello everyone!
    My name is Laura Sursi. This is my seventh year here at TMS. I have fifteen years teaching experience in language arts and social studies. I have taught in Statesville, NC, Lincoln County, NC, Chicago, Illinois, and Columbus, Ohio. I have also coached high school and middle school sports for fifteen years in swimming, water polo, and track. I believe staying healthy helps keep the mind alert to perform well in school and work.
    I graduated from Thee Ohio State University and played women's water polo for Ohio State. Go Buckeyes! My interests include swimming, running, triathlons, camping, hiking, perusing Caribbean islands, and reading. I am very excited and proud to be a TMS Bobcat and know we will have a great learning year! I currently reside in Mooresville with my family. We spend our summers traveling to different countries and becoming true lake rats on Lake Norman. GO BOBCATS!!!!!!!
