Welcome to Mrs. Upchurch's 8th grade ELA!

Welcome to 8th grade English/Language Arts.  I am excited to begin my twenty-second year teaching in Rutherford County.  I have taught reading and/or writing my entire career.  Being a part of Rocky Fork Middle School is truly one of the highlights of my career, and I am looking forward to another great year with each of you.  ELA and Writing are blocked: this means that I will have you for two class periods each day.  My goal this year is to help you find value and necessity in reading and writing.   
Please feel free to email or call any time you have questions or concerns about your child.  I am a firm believer in a team effort when it comes to your child's education.
I look forward to a great year with each of you.
Mrs. Upchurch
