My name is Caroline Breman and I am currently a teacher of 7th and 8th Grade Language Arts in Des Moines, Iowa. It is my first year teaching and I have loved every minute of it! Included on this webiste are the Iowa/ Diocese of Des Moines Teaching Standards and Criteria, as well as artifacts that support my use of these standards in my classroom. Artifacts are sorted by standard, and then further organized by benchmarks. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for stopping by!
