Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mrs. Egan's Class
I could not be more thrilled to be at Mercer this year. This is my first year teaching in Loudoun County after being in Fairfax for over 10 years. I am a graduate of the University of Rhode Island and hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and English. Early into my teaching career I made the switch from teaching first and second grade to middle scbool Englih am currently finishing my gifted and talented certification at James Madison University!
I am a mom to three girls (6th grader here at Mercer, 4th grader at Buffalo Trail and my baby whose is 3 and will be starting preschool). In my spare time I love to be with my girls and my husband. Our favorite things to do as a family involve either playing outside or watching football. Growing up in the Philadelphia area I was raised a huge Eagles fan and luckily my husband was as well so our girls knew the Eagles fight song from a very young age!
Thiis year I will be teaching at Mercer only on B days and have two blocks of 8th grade honors English and one block of 7th grade Accelerated Literature. My love of young adult literature will surely be noticeable in both classes this year and I am looking forward to sharing my favorite books with my students as well as reading recommendations from them as well.
Communication from me will occur mainly through Phoenix this year as I will be posting announements and homework assignments on a weekly basis. I will also be using the Remind app and Google classroom as a way for me to send messages to parents and students and for our classes to share information with one another.
If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year please do not hesitate to email me. I look forward to a wonderful year!
