Mr. Nordquist

Hello! My name is Mr. Nordquist and I teach English 9, English 10, and English 11 at Eagle High School.  I have worked in various roles in the field of education for the last twenty-two years.  I spent eighteen of these years working in the Westada School District.   I have taught in elementary, middle, and high school settings.  I worked as a Westada School District curriculum coordinator, building administrator, summer school administrator, and gifted & talented facilitator.  I also worked as an associate professor at Northwest Nazarene University in the area of Innovation in Education.  In this role, I worked as a part of a team which provided professional development for educators both nationally and internationally to help integrate innovative practices in education in order to develop deeper learning competencies in students.  I trained public and private school teachers, administrators, superintendents, and board members, as well as, university and adjunct professors.   I recently presented at at the following conferences: IETA, NWeLearn, STEM Together, and IASA.  

I enjoy spending time with my family and helping to encourage our two teenage children to continue to learn, grow, and reach their goals.  In my spare time I enjoy reading, creating with technology, travel, building, mountain biking, kayaking, and hiking.  I look forward to working with all of you this year.  I'm excited to see the connections students will make as we work on reading, writing, and sharing ideas!
