Urfer, Ben - 7th Grade ELA

Hello My Name Is Benjamin Urfer!

A little about me...
I was born in San Franciso, CA, but I spent most of my childhood hanging on the other coast in Sarasota, FL.  I am a proud graduate of the University of Florida.  Go Gators!!  Life then took me on a journey for the next part of my life.  The next several years of my life were spent sauntering around and working in different parts of this amazing planet.  I love to share stories from these experiences with my students.  I moved back to the United States and found employment as a teacher at Erwin Middle.  
I love staying active.  Hiking, running, and basketball are my favorite ways to spend my hours away from work.  I help run the Hiking Club at the school, and I challenge any student to take me on the court!!

A little about my class...
I take great pride in providing a safe place with strict, but fair, rules for students.  Students will definitely improve their writing skills and grammar knowledge while in room 10.  Students will be expected to read, write, share, and grow on a daily basis.  We will read great novels and short stories.  There will be essay contests.  There will be work!
