Hi Fellow Hornets! 

My name is Wura Kolawole (pronounced Kuh-LAH-wo-LAY) I am a 7th Grade English Language Arts teacher here at Helen Fort Middle School. Some interesting facts about me:

I am a first generation Nigerian American. My parents immigrated to this country 30 plus years ago.

I enjoy writing, singing, travel, and fried plantains. 

I am passionate about teaching and devoted to making a postive impact in the lives of every student I come into contact with.
