This blog was created as a way to reflect on my teaching and to share the work that my students are doing. It is a “work in progress”, and will continue to evolve as I learn alongside my students.

The title of this blog, “Adventures in Learning”, perfectly states the unpredictable nature of middle school. Every day is an adventure…you never know what each day will bring. That is why I love teaching middle school…

I have had the privilege of teaching at the same middle school for 19 years. Although the majority of my time has been spent in 6th grade, I have taught 7th and 8th grade language arts. I have spent the last three years in a 1:1 iPad classroom, and I love the challenge of updating my curriculum to meet the ever-changing demands faced by all educators.
