Hi! I am Ms. Dexter, and this will be my twenty-eighth year of teaching and my eighth year at Thornton Middle School. I graduated from DePauw University in Indiana and taught in Fort Wayne Community Schools for fifteen years. I have been teaching in Colorado since 2008. This year I will be working with seventh and eigth grade students in Media Concepts where we will present daily school morning announcements and publish the school newspaper. I will also be working with students in Language Arts Extensions, which is a class where students will learn many strategies to improve their reading and writing.
