About Ms. Scudder

This is my 13th year teaching at GMS, where I teach 7th grade English,work with the after school homework group, and run an after school cooking group. I also coach Cross Country and Track & Field.  Outside of school I am a voracious reader, and I enjoy running and cooking.

Just Write: Here's How!

 by Walter Dean Myers.  

"Myers offers a wealth of advice that is professional and pragmatic and often couched in the context of his own work...Feeling that books saved his life, Myers now gives his readers the same opportunity through his advice and his largehearted example.” (Booklist)
Currently Writing:

As a teacher of writing, I think it's important that I'm also a writer.  Currently I'm developing topics for a poem for my niece that will be a gift of writing.  I'm also developing topics for a short story.  Fiction is the most difficult genre for me to write in, but I want to push myself to write more fiction this year.
