Welcome to Freshmen Summit English!
Books are my passion! I love reading and collecting books. I try very hard to make learning fun but rigorous! My other passions in life are my husband of 25 years, Shawn; my family, Kristen (22), Kelly (20), & Jordan (18); music and worship; my four grand-puppies; Boise State and Seattle football; and photography. i have also become obsessed with my new FitBit and try walking 20,000 steps a day! In my spare time, I have also thought about starting a wedding decorating business!
The course content focuses on reading, writing, listening, speaking, and observing. Students will read literary and informational materials, write in various formats, orally present information, research topics, and critique work. Students who master the course content will be prepared for the next level English requirement and further study in the real world.
This is my fifth year teaching at Columbia High School. For the 2017-2018 school year, I am teaching Summit English and Summit Honors for 9th grade.
I attended Boise State University and earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Teaching. Before coming to the Nampa School District in 2013, I taught courses at Nampa Classical Charter School, Sage Valley Middle School in the Vallivue District, and Greenleaf Academy.
