Bill Faine helping 7th graders build community in Language Arts

Ada’s 7th grade Language Arts classes are on track to achieve several personal and community goals this school year, according to Bill Faine, “mayor” of the classes.

In reality, Faine is the teacher, and that’s where the fun and personal goals begin.

“I want them (the students) to be active, productive and part of the community,” said Faine.
