Hi! My name is Ms. VanTimmeren, and I will be teaching 8th grade ELA. I graduated from Western Michigan University with a B.A. in English and the University of Southern California with an M.A. in Education. What drives me as a teacher is sharing my passion for language and literature with students. I am committed to helping every student succeed - and have fun doing so! This year, I hope to help every student feel positive about reading and writing.
