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.

In March 2009, my blog was showcased by Sue Walters on The Edublogger site. As a result, this blog has had visitors from all around the world. It has been so exciting to see new dots appear on my clustr map! (see the clustr map below as of 9/24/09) Thanks again, Sue!
Thanks for checking in. I would love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a comment and please visit again!
