Welcome to Language Arts!


My name is Heidi Madrid, and I'm so excited to begin this academic journey with your student!  As a third generation teacher, I can't imagine not being in the classroom, and Dutch Fork Middle School is truly my home, professionally that is!  This is my 17th year teaching eighth-grade English at DFMS.  I've taught all levels of ELA as well as our English 1-Honors courses.  I currently serve students on Team 82, both in the classroom and as the Team Leader. 


This website is designed as a resource tool for both parents and students. Feel free to email me with any questions that you may have.  I look forward to a fantastic school year!
