Welcome to 6th grade Social Studies and ELA with Ms. Shaw! I am so excited to begin my first year at West End Middle School. Please know that we have your child's best interest at heart and we are here to support them and their learning any way we can. We promise to provide rigorous and challenging lessons in the classroom, and meet your child at their learning level on a day to day basis. Thank you for all of your support.
