Hello and welcome! My name is Ms. Rilkoff and this is my fifth year teaching sixth grade. Before joining MNMS, I taught English and Writing in New York City and Laos. I love teaching middle school and reading YA lit! Some of my favorite books are Scythe, Number the Stars, A Long Way Down, Amal Unbound, and El Deafo.
In my free time, you can find me writing poetry and short stories. Here is a link to one of my poems, published this past spring! I also love to cook, find new hiking trails and swimming holes in State College, play soccer, and spend time with my fiance and family. I am so excited to learn alongside you this year.
