Welcome to Ms. Townsend's 6th Grade Classroom Website! I am extremely excited to begin what will be a wonderful year here at LAMS. Our wonderful staff is ready to help our students succeed academically while providing them a welcoming and engaging classroom enviornment. I would like to give you a quick introduction on myself. I was born and raised right here in the Fort Myers area, attending Lee County schools from Elementary School through High School. After graduation, I was accepted into the University of West Florida's Archaeology program in Pensacola, Florida. For four years, I spent most of my time working on archaeological sites all through out the Florida panhandle. Upon my college graduation, I made the decision to take my passion for reading and history into education. I was so happy to be back in my hometown where I am close to my family and working for an amazing district. I am thankful to be a teacher, and look forward to this new school year with my students! If you have any questions or need to contact me, feel free to email me at arieljto@leeschools.net
