Welcome students!!!!!!

 

Hello parents, students, and anyone else visiting my website! I'm Ms. Moon, one of the proud English teachers at Springfield High School. Let me tell you a bit about myself. I attended Eastern Illinois University where I earned a BA in English with a creative writing minor as well as my teacher's certification. I also attended the University of Illinois, Chicago, where I worked on my master's degree in American literature. I began teaching in District 186 in 2002 and have worked at Jefferson Middle School, Southeast High School, and Lanphier High School until, after an eight-year hiatus raising my two children,  I returned to teach at SHS where I am beginning my ninth year. I have a personal stake in SHS, as well, as my daughter, Ava, is a JUNIOR this year!  My son, Jack, is an eighth-grader at Franklin Middle School, and I'm sure will be at SHS in the blink of an eye!  I feel OLD!!! This year I am teaching 135 freshman English, creative writing/African American Lit, and I am also the yearbook advisor! Although this year is different and a little bit scary and unpredictable,  I am excited to tackle this new challenge!!  

Let's have an amazing, out-of-the box, school year!!!  Ms. Moon nmoon@sps186.org (best way to get in contact with me!)
