Mrs. Forsdick

My name is Sheri Forsdick and I will be your Lewis and Clark 7th Grade Composition and Literature Strategies teach this year. I'm looking forward to getting to know each of you. I am married and have 2 children. I enjoy traveling, reading, quilting, and taking walks with my husband. This is my 6th year teaching at Lewis and Clark. I have always loved reading and writing. My favorite part of teaching is seeing the "Ah ha" moments in students' eyes.
