•  Katie Harnish Son First Day of School 2016 Katie Harnish Son with a Big Smile
    Welcome to English 2 Pre-AP and English 2! 
     
    My name is Katie Harnish and I have my Master's in Education from the University of Oklahoma that I completed in December of 2013. I also have my Bachelor's of Science in Business and Sociology from OU. This is my fifth full year of teaching, and my third year teaching tenth grade. I have also taught every other grade from 6-12 in some form or fashion! I am so excited to be teaching at Boswell and look forward to spending many more years here. 
     
    The picture above is a photo of me and my husband Drew, an Engineer at Lockheed Martin, with our baby boy Everett who was born in April of 2016. His big smiles and sweet personality light up our lives. When I'm not at school, I'm with these two men in my life!

    Smart Devices  

    While BOS is a BYOD school that supports the use of electronic devices to help further students learning, the district policy regarding the use of these devices will be strictly adhered to.  These rules are as follows:

    ·         These devices must remain turned off during instructional class time…unless they are being used for approved instructional purposes.

    ·         If a student uses a telecommunications device without authorization during the school day, the device will be confiscated.  The parent may pick up the confiscated telecommunications device from the principal’s office for a fee of $15.

    For more information on the use of electronic devices, please see pg. 53-54 Of the EMS ISD Student Handbook.


     

     Below, are letters to parents that give an overview of what topics and skills we will be covering each six weeks during this school year.
     
    The mission of Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Independent School District is to foster a culture of excellence that instills a passion for a lifetime of continuous achievement in every student.
