If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire… | by Adrienne Grimes | Amateur  Book Reviews | Medium
Come in!  Welcome to Middle School and Sixth Grade English Language Arts.  I am so excited to have you in class this year and begin this new journey.  I am looking forward to a fun, challenging, successful, and productive school year.  Remember, we are in this together!

This is my fourth year teaching Sixth Grade ELA at Marsteller Middle School.  I have also taught elementary and preschool.  I graduated with an English degree from George Mason University, concentrating in Poetry and British Literature, and I am certified to teach ELA Grades 6-12.  I consider myself lucky as an educator because I have first-hand knowledge and experience of where my students have been regarding the ELA curriculum, and where they need to go in order to be successful throughout their educational career.  This year, I will once again be working with the talented Special Education Teacher Extraordinaire, Mrs. McDaniel.  We always have fun together!

I am very passionate about reading and writing.  Sometimes, free writing in a journal allows me to express thoughts, feelings, and emotions that I may struggle sharing out loud.  Additionally, reading enables me to join new worlds, meet new people, and provide an escape from day to day life.  I love how books always teach me something new and give me the opportunity to think about the world in new ways.  I hope that we can share in a love of reading, writing, and learning this school year!
