Ms. Erin Fahnstrom
My name is Erin Fahnstrom, and I am so pleased to be starting my second year with Meridian Middle School. I will be teaching English 8. I greatly look forward to working with each of you and learning all I can from you. Middle school is such an important time in a student's life and I feel so fortunate to be able to participate in this significant time in your education.
To give you a little background about me, I received my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Oregon. Later, I earned a degree in design from Bellevue College. After working in the corporate world, the design field, and having my own family, I realized a life-long dream of becoming a teacher. Previously, I've taught English, American government, and was the head of the resource department at an area high school. I recently finished my Master's in Teaching English Language Arts at Boise State University. When I am not teaching or attending school myself, I am a busy mother of a college freshman and a 7th grader. I am delighted to have the opportunity to share my passion for literature and writing with a new generation and be a part of the Meridian Middle School community.
