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.

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