    Welcome to 8th grade ELA!  I am excited to start the school year with you.  
    About Ms. Lorenz:  I have been teaching in the Paw Paw District for 27 years, and before that I taught in New York and Virginia.  My family includes 3 lovely grown girls.  Jennifer lives in Kalamazoo with me and is working on a master's degree in social work, Stephanie lives in Palm Coast Florida and is a curriculum and instructional specialist for students with autism, and Katie lives in Springfield, Missouri and works as a Financial Aid advisor at Evangel University.  Outside of school I love reading, hiking, biking, playing with my handbell group, going to the beach, and traveling to see family.
    Communication between parents and teachers is key for having a successful school year.  The best way to contact me is by email.  I will check my emails both before and after school as well as during my planning period which is 7th hour.  I will respond as quickly as possible.  Please feel free to call or email whenever you have questions or concerns about your child's education.
