Welcome to 7th Grade Eng/Language Arts

Mrs Ogilbee - ELA grade 7


Welcome to my website and welcome back to school!


A little bit about myself:  Although I am not a Florida native, I have lived in Manatee County area for the past 14 years.  I am originally from Michigan and attended the University of Michigan and received a B.S. in ELA/Math Education and an M.A. as a K-12 Reading Specialist.  I have been a middle school teacher for 20 years having taught grades 6th-9th. This year will be by 6th year teaching at Rowlett Middle Academy and I have to say working at this school is incredible!  I feel so incredibly blessed to be one of the original teachers that opened this school in 2017.


I am looking forward to a great year! This will be an engaging, informative, and exciting class! If you have any questions, concerns, or problems, please contact me . Thank you for your continued support with your child's education. If you need to know assignments missed, please have your child check their ELA Google Classroom. Thank you.
