Ms. Courtney Wamhoff

Welcome!  I am one of the 6th grade English Language Arts teachers at Eagle Middle School for the 2019- 2020 school year.  It is my pleasure to work alongside Marcy Pishl, Trina Hallenberger, and Tana Jons to meet the ELA needs of our 6th graders.  

Previously, I spent 12 years teaching Special Education here at Eagle Middle School and love working with the administrators, staff and students here at EMS!  I transitioned to 6th grade ELA last school year and have found my passion!  I graduated from BSU in 2006 with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Elementary Education (with endorsements in Special Education: mild to moderate and severe to profound).  
 
This year I am excited to teach an advisory class and three periods each of Literature and Strategies and Writing Composition.  Advisory is a twenty-minute daily meeting time for students and their teachers.  Advisory serves as a home base for students, offering them the opportunity to develop personal, social, academic, and study skills that will help them make a successful transition from an elementary to a middle school setting.   Literature and Strategies assignments focus on first reads, close reads, analyzing the text and analyzing craft and structure. Students will read selections of different genres, including multi-media. Writing Composition assignments focus on language development, including: concept vocabulary, word study, and conventions, and effective expression, including: writing to sources, speaking and listening.   

Please feel free to call or email me (Wamhoff.Courtney@westada.org) with any questions or concerns.
