Welcome to English 8 -- I am very excited to be a part of the Star Middle School team!
I left the business world (U.S. Bank and Hewlett Packard Company) 15 years ago to enter the profession of teaching. I began my teaching career at South Middle School in the Nampa School District. Five years ago, I joined the West Ada School District and taught at Meridian Middle School. I am very proud to say that both of my children graduated from West Ada schools!
Teaching middle school is a very rewarding experience, and it is an opportunity to interact with an amazing (and amuzing) age group. Teaching ELA allows me to instill reading, writing, speaking and listening skills and to help my students understand how developing these skills will benefit them in high school--and beyond.
We’re going to make this a fantastic 2018-2019 school year ~ IT’S GREAT TO BE A COWBOY! 🤠
