Ms. Kirsten Corbman

Hi! My name is Kirsten Corbman, and I teach English 9 Honors. I was born and raised in Loudoun County, having graduated from Broad Run High School. I went to Virginia Tech (go Hokies!) for both my undergraduate and gradute degrees. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Literature and Language, along with a second major certificate in Creative Writing. I received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in English Education. In my free time, I enjoy reading and walking my dog. My favorite book is Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I'm so excited to start this school year!

    For parents and guardians: If you need to chat over the phone, please email me so we can arrange a time. I am available during my planning blocks (stated above) or before school (8:15 AM) most days. I sponsor Wildlife Clubs on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday after school, leaving Monday as my main day to meet after school. Please email me so we can arrange a time to chat, as sometimes other meetings take up these times! If you would like to arrange an in-person conference, please email me, and I will chat with our team counselor to arrange a meeting.

    I like to send out a monthly newsletter letting you know what to expect for your student in English class. Make sure your email is up to date in ParentVue!

    Also, I encourage parents to join Remind. Remind is a free app that allows teachers to send reminders for homework and other assignments related to class. I love that it can clue parents into what is expected from their student for English!

    Text the code that correlates to your student's class to the number 81010 (include the @ symbol):

    • 4th block: @Corbman4
    • 6th block: @Corbman6

    • 8th block: @Corbman8

    If parents would like to see what is on Google Classroom, they are welcome to log into Classroom using their student's login and password.
