About Miss Cowart: This is my 6th year teaching and my 6th year with the English Department at HMS. I teach 8th grade Language Arts On-Level and Advanced. I also coach UIL academics (Dictionary Skills 7-8 and Poetry 8) and am one of the sponsors for National Junior Honor Society. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in 2015 with a degree in English Language Arts and Literature and a minor in Secondary Education (7-12). I plan to attend college again to earn my master's degree in Library and Information Science because I believe we are never truly finished learning.
I am so excited for you to join our classroom family. We have two rules in our classroom: work hard and be kind. We love to work together to make sure that everyone is able to learn, grow, and be apart of our discussions. We will discuss some difficult material through out the year, so we find it important to create a safe and respectful place for us to communicate with each other. I am delighted to share this journey with you. Always remember that your voice matters.
