Enjoying time in the woods
   Hello, parents and students! Parents, I am so excited to be working with your child this year on their journey to improving their skills and knowledge regarding writing and grammar. Students, I am anticipating a fantastic year as I help you grow in your academic career. Here are a few facts about myself that may help the transition into 8th grade ELA easier. 
   Living in the OKC metro area my entire life, I have enjoyed reading as a hobby since I attended elementary school. This love of reading progressed into a love of creative writing and the subject of English. In the fall of 2013, I published a YA novel and continue to write during my free time. However, my discovery of my passion for teaching did not occur until later in my college career.
   Throughout my time at Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma, I continued to nurture my passion for the English language and literature while building my understanding and love of teaching. I student taught alongside Mrs. Marilyn Bilbrey in the fall of 2016 at Mustang North, and I fell in love with the school during that time. Graduating in May 2017 with a BA in English Education and a minor in history, I am excited to be starting my third year at Mustang North as an ELA teacher! I am also pursuing a masters in English Literature at UCO. This year, I will be teaching the reading portion of the subject, and my hope is that all students will leave my classroom in May feeling as if they were respected, loved, and prepared for the academic future, whatever that may look like. 
   Should you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding your student, do not hesitate to contact me via email at howards@mustangps.org
   Let's have a stupendous year!
