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!
