Hello! My name is Mrs. Souders, and I am going to be your 7th grade English Language Arts teacher! This will be my first year teaching and our first year at Mustang Central Middle School. I love middle school English and the adventures of reading, writing, language, and conversation!
I have a Bachelor’s degree in English with a teaching certification, and I love to teach reading and writing! I can’t wait to explore how we will grow as readers discovering new genres and texts together.
I grew up in Yukon, Oklahoma, and I had the joy of attending Mustang Trails Elementary School from 2004-2008. Although I am a graduate from Yukon High School, Mustang has always had a special place in my heart. There is no place I would rather begin my journey in education than Mustang, Oklahoma. My family still lives in the area, and I will always call this home.
This summer I got to take my dream trip to England and Scotland! I got to see the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Stonehenge, the Royal Crescent in Bath, and breathtaking castles in Scotland. I’m greatly looking forward to sharing these learning experiences with my students this year. Over the summer break, I also taught at Redlands Community College as an English instructor for the TRiO Upward Bound education program. This was my first group of students, and it was an exciting and engaging English experience!
I can’t wait to spend the next year learning and growing with you!
