Welcome to 7th grade ELA and WEB at Battle Creek Middle School!
I have been a junior high/middle school teacher my entire career. I really appreciate the energy and openness of middle school students, and am lucky to get to work with the students at BCMS. In ELA 7, we follow the workshop model of reading and writing. We work together to learn how to read different kinds of texts, as well as how to "read" visual art and film. I am lucky to be one of the WEB teachers (with Mr Hudalla) because I get to see so many of my former students take on leadership roles at BCMS.
I'm obsesssed with all things peanut butter and have been known to polish off a bag of Swedish Fish now and again.
