Welcome to Team 8B! I have been an eighth grade English teacher in Brainerd for seven years. Prior to that, I taught high school for nine years in the Moorhead and Frazee school districts. 

I grew up in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. I attended Southwest Minnesota State University as an undergraduate and the University of St. Thomas for my graduate degree.






Course Description  

English 8 will cover a wide range of language arts skills and units. Over the course of the year, students will work with Accelerated Reader, various novels, short stories, grammar, composition, public speaking, nonfiction, and creative writing.
