Welcome to the Middle School Language Arts Department at St. Raphael School!
My name is Mrs. Cornwell, and I teach 6-8th grade Literature and English. I have a great love and passion for language arts and I'm so excited to be a part of this community. Here you will be able to find updates with fun things our classes are doing, as well as view our assignments.
Soon, I hope to add a student-led blog with more updates of our writing, the literary insights we are gaining, and the activities we are doing. Enjoy!
