Welcome to the life and times of 8th grade language arts! I am thrilled with the wonderful start to our new year! All of my classes are working hard and are a real pleasure to be with.
A little bit about me...
I have done my entire career in Round Lake and at the middle school level. I started in 1979 teaching in the "old" Magee. I then moved to RLMS when Magee was shut down. It was there the Wilson Team was born, and we have been together ever since with a little tweeking here and there!
I have a Bachelor's degree from Barat College (now closed) in English and Secondary Education. My Master's is from Roosevelt University in Administration and Supervision. At school, I am the team leader for the Wilson Team, and I am also the Curriculum Coordinator for the language arts department.
At home, I am married to John Wilson, and we have one daughter, Lexi. She is 13 years old. She has just started her 8th grade year, so now I have two sets of kids to love and help get through 8th grade!
This year has gotten off to a wonderful start. I am looking forward to that pattern continuing. My "kids" are hard workers, fun to be around, and fun to play with - when there is time to play.
