Mr. Jesse Bortner

Welcome to 7th grade ELA! 

In this course we will focus on reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.  While adolescence may be a struggle at times, I ensure students that tough times breed tough people.  English is a great vehicle to help students grow during their middle school years, and I will use their experiences to help leverage their growth in all ways that I can.  We are all in this together!

If you ever have any questions or concerns with your student, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at
