I am Madeleine Toerne, the newest 7th grade ELA teacher. I hail from Toledo, Ohio, but have lived in Western North Carolina since June 2019. Before coming to work at OMS, I worked at a resort in Wyoming, waited tables and substitute taught in Michigan, and worked as an interpretive park guide for the Blue Ridge Parkway. I enjoy reading, writing, hiking, biking, eating, discussing, walking, playing guitar, singing, organizing, cooking, exploring, and spending time with loved ones.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your student this year. I have a lot of exciting plans created to help students sharpen their writing, reading, and critical thinking skills. This fall we will be: 

1. Spending time getting to know one another 
2. Practicing proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation with our weekly language reviews
3. Reading short stories and engaging in discussion 
4. Writing short narrative pieces 
5. Reading Mark Twain's Adventures of Tom Sawyer

You can contact me via e-mail at 
My office hours are 1pm-3:30pm if you need to schedule an in-person or phone meeting.
