Welcome To 8th Grade ELA
My name is Laura McQuiston. I teach both regular and advanced ELA 8 at Northdale. FOr 17 years I have been a teacher but have worked for the Anoka Hennepin School District for 15. I live in Minneapolis with my husband, two boys and 2 granddaughters. I love to write and have a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Hamline University. I am also a poetry editor for Redbird Press. After school, I co-direct the fall play, edit & publish Kaleidoscope (NMS literary and art journal 2 per year), facilitate “Writer’s Breakfast” which will start in January. I look forward to getting to know all of you during the 2019-2020 school year.
Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
