Welcome to English/Language Arts 9! My name is Ms. Dawn Gratchic, and I’d like to personally welcome you to my class. I began my career at Jefferson Morgan in 2004 as a student teacher. Since then I’ve been a day-to-day substitute and long-term substitute in the district. I was hired as the 9th grade ELA teacher in 2010. Prior to the start of my teaching career, I studied at California University of Pennsylvania, where I received a Bachelor of Science in Education degree and a Master of Arts in Secondary Education degree. Currently I teach ELA 9 , Creative Writing, and Novel Approach 7 and 8.
