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. This is my 19th year teaching eighth-grade English/Language Arts in Lexington/Richland School District 5.  I've taught all levels of ELA as well as our English 1-Honors courses.  In addition to currently teaching, I also serve as an 8th Grade 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!
