Welcome to my blog! I teach 7th grade Language Arts at McDowell Exchange School in the Logan Elm School district. I previously taught 5th grade at Laurelville Elementary (in the same district)-math for the last three years and language arts prior to that.
My hope is that this blog serves as a sort of newsletter for our class, keeping parents and students informed of class news and assignments for our Language Arts Class. I also intend for it to be a place where students can share their writing and their thoughts on books that they are reading.

Thanks for checking in. I would love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a comment and please visit again!
