Dear Students, 
It is my pleasure to welcome you to eighth grade English.  I am excited to share this year with you.  As we embark on this new school year, I want to take a moment to introduce myself.  My name is Mrs. Herron and I will be your teacher.  I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English, a Master of Arts in English, and a Master of Arts in Teaching.  I have high expectations for each of you and I know that you will meet and exceed them. 
My hobbies include reading, dancing, and anything that is outdoors.  Since COVID, I have spent a lot of time hiking.  I am a coffee lover, and you will notice I always have my coffee with me in class.  I am a proud ETSU alumna and attend campus events like concerts and lectures often.  My favorite book is Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman.  As for other books I love, I genuinely like them all!  I can never seem to decide if I prefer American or British Literature.  I love classic, canonized literature, but I also love current, less well-known works.  I am excited to spend this year reading and learning with each of you.  We will be reading everything from Agatha Christie to Shakespeare.  I am interested to see which of the works we read is your favorite!
If you need to contact me outside of class, please email me at  I am looking forward to a great school year with you! 
Mrs. Herron
