Mrs. Katie Baun
Hello, and welcome to 8th grade English! I teach regular English 8, GT English, and I also coach 8th grade girls basketball.
I'm starting my 21st year of teaching ELA, and this is my 8th year at Eagle Middle School. I graduated from Boise State University in 2001 with a Bachelor's degree in Teaching Secondary English and Communications, and then received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, also from Boise State.
I grew up mostly in the mid-west, but have called Idaho home since 1996. Outside the classroom you'll find me spending time with my husband and two sons, age 16 and 12, and our weiner dogs Riley and Scout. We mountain bike, run, hike, dance, drag race, camp, watch/play football, go to movies, read, play cards, and travel.
Please check my calendar at least once a week for assignments and due dates, and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
