Welcome to ELA 6 (English Language Arts). Hi my name is Carol Moran. I have been teaching both 5th and 6th grade for years. When the 6th graders moved up to middle school a few years ago, I moved with them. Why do I like 6th graders? Well, they live in the moment. I love watching and helping them navigate their way as they begin their journey into the teen years. It's an exciting and anxious time for most and I am here to be part of it; hopefully making it easier.
About me - I am married to a great guy and have two amazing daughters. Grace who lives in Madison, Wi is working in her field after graduating from college. My other daughter is in the Pre-Veterinarian program at the U of M. Our love of travel has taken us all over the US, all around Europe, and Peru. I love to run, bike and of course take my dog Pete for walks. I read everything. My favorite is non-fiction. My latest book was called, Drive by Pink. I have also read many, many teen books. My latest challenge was to put in a bamboo floor in my kitchen and back room. Wow, what a crazy hard project, but it looks great.
I can't wait to meet all of the incoming 6th graders and am ready to have a great year.
