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

Welcome to 8th grade English/Language Arts.  I am excited to begin my twenty-fourth 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 [email protected] 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
