Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, and welcome to 8th grade English!
This is my first year here at Eagle Middle School, where I teach both Honors English 8 and regular English 8. I am very excited to be here. I have been in education for over 20 years and have taught in private, public, and alternative classrooms, grades 6th through 9th. I graduated with my K-8 Bachelor's of Science with K-12 Literacy degree from Idaho State University in 1997, and just recently recieved my Master's degree in Literacy from Boise State University. For the last 6 1/2 years, I have been working as the English Language Arts/Literacy Coordinator for the Idaho State Department of Education, and am very excited to be back in the classroom working with students.
I will be updating our classroom calendar regularly, so please check back to see assignments and due dates. If you see assignments missing, that you know should be there, please check on Mrs. Baun's site to see if they can be located there as we are working together on all of our work this year.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
I will be adhering to the late work cut off periods noted in the EMS calendar for the remainder of the year.
