Mrs. Eckert - Middle School Language Arts
English Department Head

I am thrilled to start another year with middle schoolers!  August 2016 will be the beginning of my 16th year of teaching middle school English, and this year will be my 10th at Parker Core Knowledge.  My two youngest children attend PCK; CJ is in 7th grade, and Ashlyn is in 3rd grade. After attending PCK from kindergarten to 8th grade, Clason has moved onto high school; she is a sophomore.

In November 2011 I finished my Master's in Secondary Education.  In addition to my master's degree, I hold a Bachelor's in English and another in Art History; I also have a minor in Visual Arts, Photography. I love to read and study English.  I'm constantly looking to improve my knowledge and my teaching.  I hope, one day when my children are much older, to return to college to expand my English education... possibly a Doctorate?  

But for now, I'm looking forward to another great year.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  Email is certainly the easiest and quickest way to reach me, but please call if needed.
