Ms. Fowler's Homework Calendar

Welcome to 8th Grade! I am looking forward to leading my students through another exciting and educational year within the worlds of language and literature. This year, you will have many opportunities to explore the many faces of fiction, investigate the elements of nonfiction, and learn all about the power of strong vocabulary. You will also dive into a variety of writing genres, examining mentor texts and trying your hand at professional writing tasks involving both fiction and nonfiction. 

Since receiving my Bachelor's Degree in English from Western State College in Gunnison in 1996, I have taught both seventh and eighth grade language arts, eighth grade social studies, and middle school humanities, drama, and speech. This is my fourth year teaching 8th Grade, and my twelfth year overall, here at Falcon Bluffs. In that time, I also earned my Master's degree in Reading Curriculum and Instruction.

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons, ages 13 and 9. I am an avid reader, I love taking road trips with the family, and our kitties and adorable pup are always good for some entertainment around the house.  

I hope to provide you with a comprehensive and interesting look at the subjects of reading comprehension and vocabulary, as well as in-depth studies of a variety of writing genres. If you ever have questions, please ask! You can email me for a quicker response, or you can also feel free to leave me a voice mail. 

Enjoy the 2017-2018 school year!


"Education is not the filling of a pail,

                      but the lighting of a fire."
