I am a middle grades teacher who loves teaching!
Yes, it’s just that simple.
I believe in the middle grades student, and that great achievement is possible during these often awkward and developing years. I enjoy being a part of that change. I firmly believe the 4th-8th grade years can and should be enriching, positive, and life changing years for my students.
I hope that my message inspires other middle grades teachers to stay vigilant, optimistic, and forever passionate about the art of teaching middle grades students.
