Hello! My name is Ellen Carter and I teach 6th grade Reader's and Writer's Workshop! This is my first year in St Paul Public Schools and my 5th year of teaching overall. I am so excited to be a part of the Murray Pilots Community!
During ELA class, students learn and apply strategies that become part of a toolbox of necessary skills, strategies, and inquiry work needed to thrive in high school and beyond. We expose students to a multitude of texts and assist students in finding a genre or author they are passionate about reading. My goal is to help inspire and guide students in becoming lifelong readers, critical thinkers, and strong writers.
When I'm not at school you can find me going for walks along the Mississisppi, baking (bread and sweets!), spending time with my friends, doing crossword puzzles, and trying to pet every cat I can find. I love reading, story-telling, and learning new things!
The best way to contact me is through email, but I am also available for texts and calls during school hours through my Google Voice number. Please reach out if you have any questions for me; I always do my best to respond to emails quickly. I love connecting with families to support my students as fully as possible, so don't hesitate to contact me.
Here's to a wonderful school year!
