About Mrs. Wilson
 
The 2021-22 school year will mark my 18th year of teaching English at Davis Middle School.  I taught 6th grade English language arts and social studies for 6 years and this will be my 12th year teaching 7th grade English.  I am currently serving as the Business Professionals of America (BPA) Advisor and have been in that role for the last 6 years.  I am a graduate of Michigan State University with a bachelor's degree in elementary education and minors in English and history.  I also received my Master's degree in Literacy Instruction from Michigan State University in 2009.  I currently serve as Board Member/Secretary of CAPA (Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness) in Hillsdale County and am a member of Delta Kappa Gamma sorority for educators in the county.  In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my family and friends, reading, cooking, and working in my garden.

Favorite Quotes About Reading:

"Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body."  ~Joseph Addison

 

Literacy unlocks the door to learning throughout life, is essential to development and health, and opens the way for democratic participation and active citizenship." ~Kofi Annan
