Welcome to English 8! I have been teaching for 15 years, after leaving the business world (U.S. Bank and Hewlett Packard Company). I began my teaching career in 2004 at South Middle School in the Nampa School District. I joined the West Ada School District at Meridian Middle School and taught there for five years, before joining the new Star Middle School team. I am proud to say that both of my children attended and graduated from West Ada schools.
Teaching is an extremely rewarding experience, and it is also an opportunity to interact with an amazing (and amuzing) age group. Teaching English Language Arts allows me to instill reading, writing, speaking and listening skills and to help my students understand how these skills are important now and in their future. Each day I'm in class, I am surrounded by creative students whose academic abilities and talents will benefit them well into their high school years and beyond.
We’re going to make this a fantastic 2018-2019 school year at our new Star Middle School— IT’S GREAT TO BE A COWBOY! 🤠
