I am so excited to be here at FTMS West teaching 8th grade Science. I am currently from Bloomington, IN, but planning on moving closer very soon! I graduated from IU in 2010 and can teach 3 different subjects (my favorite being Science of course). I am very passionate and dedicated to helping each of my students succeed! I cannot wait for this year to start!

I'm Katie Toczek, and I am one of the new 7th grade Language Arts teachers! I graduated from Indiana University, and this is my second year teaching middle school, even though I am new to the West team. Last year I taught back in my hometown of Northwest Indiana. I absolutely love teaching and reading, and I am so excited to be in Franklin Township. I am also the new West cheer coach! West is best!
