It's 7th grade time with Mr. Langin! Students and parents - get ready for a wild ride!
 
This website contains information on nightly and long-term assignments, cool web resources
to help with writing, grammar, and research, and websites we'll be using in projects throughout the year.
 
So, who is Mr. Langin?
 
I began teaching at Haverford Middle School in 2004 after a wide variety of other careers that included
sales, marketing, non-profit work, and writing. (There are others!) I am thrilled that I made the
change to education, because I love coming to work every day. I am a graduate of Villanova University,
and I have my Master's degree (+30) in Education.

I am married and have two beautiful daughters. Family is very important to me, and I look on my                                                         classroom as an extension to my own family. (Ask my old students!)  

I am a former magazine columnist and have written a number of books for middle school readers.
(Two are available for purchase - Click here to learn more.) I love anything that has to do with
telling stories. For that reason, I incorporate a lot of art, music, and film into my classroom
(along with books, of course).

At Haverford, I am in charge of our Student Council (a leadership group dedicated to service to our
school and our community) and our Actor's Workshop (a theater improv group). Ask me about either!
These two groups are very near to my heart. Outside of school I am a director of the
Five Father's Children's Charity and a performer in the Spotlight Theater Improv Troupe and the kids
comedy improv group DJ Mixup.

 I think it is important to laugh out loud every
 day and at oneself whenever possible. Whether you
 are a student of mine (past or present) or a parent
 of a student, we are on a unique journey together.
 Let's work together to make this academic
 experience a memorable one.

 Best,

 Mr. Langin
