I have changed grade levels and can not use these wonderful magazines anymore.  These are still timely for today and in perfect condition unless noted otherwise.  My students took really good care of them because they enjoyed reading them so much!  I also used them for small group lessons.

I am teaching 8th grade English now.  Open to trade offers.  I enjoy reading scifi/fantasy, teen reads, romance...really just about anything.  I'll even trade for credits!
