Something about me.

A note about my assignments: My educational background is in middle school education. I am approaching these assignments from a middle school student perspective. While completing each assignment, I will include my thoughts about the educational value of the assignment in a middle school setting, from both the student's and teacher's perspective, on many of my assignments.
