Welcome to Fireworks Language & Literature

My name is Ms. Hellevik, and I teach Language & Literature at Sanford.  I am in my fifth year of teaching at Sanford, and the third year looping with the amazing Fireworks students!  I look forward to seeing their progress this year, as we all prepare to move the students on to high school.  Eighth Grade is a time for the students to transition to taking ownership of their learning, their classwork, and their homework.  We will continue to work on this in class this year.  I love hearing from parents- please email me at kathleen.hellevik@mpls.k12.mn.us if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
