Who is Mr. Baumgartner?


Welcome to English class!

This is my 6th year teaching 8th grade English, fourth year in Westwood, and I am excited to keep creating new and improved lessons/activities for all the different types of students. I received my Bachelor's degree in English/Education from William Paterson University. In my spare time I like to hang out with my family going to as many different places as we can. I always pride myself on the passion and excitement that I bring into every lesson I teach. I am hopeful that this year will be a fantastic one.
