Boswell, Amy - Language Arts, Piedmont (8th)

Hello! My name is Amy Boswell!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows book

 

        Welcome to 8th grade English Language Arts on the Piedmont Team!  The 2019-20 school year will be my fourth year at Enka Middle School and I LOVE being a JET!   I look forward to my 16th year of teaching in North Carolina!   My first thirteen years were spent at Canton Middle School in 6th grade and as Lead Teacher.  

        I am proud to say that Asheville has been my home for the past 19 years, and there is no place else that I'd rather be.   I have lived in Candler for 12 years with my husband, Max, and son, Chase.   I proudly earned my teaching certificate and Master's Degree from Western Carolina University- GO CATS!   I also hold a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from the University of South Florida in Tampa.  

        Long ago, in a galaxy not so far, far away (before marriage), I played fastpitch softball in college (USF) and professionally for two years with the Women's Pro Fastpitch league (Georgia Pride).   I remain the most competitive being on the face of the planet and you will see that come out in fundraisers and games that we play between the other teams and teachers.  

        What you need to know before you begin your 8th grade year is that you are in for an amazing learning experience with the PIEDMONT team!
   I hope that you will learn to  take pride in yourself, your team, your school and your community! 

         BE PROUD TO BE A JET!  GO ENKA!
