Hi!  I'm Marypat -- the teacher behind Just Add Students.  I have over 15 years of experience teaching 4th grade through college...all things ELAR!  I am also a mentor teacher, trainer, and freelance writer.

The bulk of my experience has been in middle school.  I know teaching this age group can be a challenge; my goal is to create engaging (often quirky) activities that will encourage creativity and independent thought.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happiness always♥
