8th Grade English/Language Arts (ELA)

Hello Students, Parents & Guardians,

 
I'm Ryan VanThorre, or Mr. Ryan, and I am proud and elated to be the 8th ELA (English/Language Arts) teacher here at Folwell.
 
The easiest and most effective way to communicate with me is through my email: ryan.vanthorre@mpls.k12.mn.us
 
Please feel to contact me at anytime
 
There is homework EVERY night in this class, so please keep your eye on your student and their work habits.
 
I do send emails daily with updates with grades, attendance, and details of class activities. If I don't have your email, please email me and I'll get you added to the list.  We can have up to four emails for one student (mom, dad, grandfather, uncle, etc).
 
Also, you are cordially invited to attend my class at anytime to observe your student in action! Please feel more than welcomed to stop by and sit in on a class that your student is in anytime, it would be great to have you.
