Dear 7A students and parents,

My name is Kathryn Drewes, and I am pleased to take this opportunity to introduce myself and welcome your student to seventh grade. This is my 22nd year teaching language arts at WDMS. Over the years, I’ve taught 5th, 6th, and 7th grades. Seventh grade has been my “home” for nineteen of those years. In addition to teaching here at the middle school, I teach students from across the globe online during the summer months.

I do everything I can to assist all of my students in acquiring the skills necessary to be successful across the curriculum and beyond. I feel that a positive learning experience is built upon a collaborative effort between parents, students, and teachers; and I welcome your questions and concerns as the year progresses.

Below you will find my class handbook which will provide you with information about my class. It also includes some helpful resources to assist both you and your student navigate some of the technology that we will be using over the course of the school year. Please feel free to reach out should you need any further clarification.


Ms. Kathryn Drewes
