Letter J Summerssmith

8th Grade Language Arts Teacher



Eighth Grade

Hi there! My name is Letter J Summerssmith (he/they), and I am originally from Myrtle Beach, SC. I Graduated from the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC with a Bachelor’s in Middle Grades Education (Secondary Ed. in CO), specializing in English Language Arts. Upon graduation, my partner (of 8 years) and I decided it was time to move across the country and experience life outside of the only environment we both have ever known. During the day, I’m living my dream as I experience middle school all over again, but in my free time, I’m usually hopping between local thrift stores, designing houses and floorplans, eating Indian food, driving around different parts of Colorado, or simply blasting my favorite band, Fleetwood Mac. I am teaching 8th Grade Language Arts, as well as Creative Writing. I am so excited to be a part of the McGlone Wolfpack family!

A quote that I try to live by:

“But time makes you bolder, even children get older- and I’m getting older too.” —Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac)
