Marshall Simonds Middle School hired several new teachers this summer and over the course of the next few weeks, we will be introducing these teachers to MSMS blog followers through individual blog entries. The first teacher that we’ll be spotlighting is Ms. Ashley D’Archangelo, an English Language Arts teacher for team 7B. Ms. D’Archangelo had this to say about her teaching background and goals for her first year at MSMS: 

Welcome to 7B English language arts with Ms. D’Arcangelo!

I am happy to introduce myself as Marshall Simonds Middle School’s new 7th grade language arts teacher. I had the pleasure of working at the school last year as a long-term 8th grade language arts substitute, and I am thrilled to be back! I am a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Lowell with a Bachelor of Arts in English literature and a minor in disability studies. I earned my Master of Education in Secondary English degree at Lesley University in Cambridge. Before becoming a member of the MSMS community, I had the pleasure of working with a diverse group of 9th and 10th grade students at Medford Vocational Technical High School.

The 7th grade language arts curriculum is an exciting mix of literature, writing, vocabulary, and grammar. This year in 7B there will be assignments and activities that allow each student to express his or her creativity while mastering the skills that will help each student be successful in and after middle school. It is my true belief that every child can be successful and reach high expectations in the classroom, and I have seen this firsthand at Marshall Simonds. I look forward to working with the students and their families to create a dynamic learning environment and wonderful school year!
