Eighth Grade Language
Phone: 920 788-7945
Welcome! I'm Mrs. Fogarty, the eighth grade Language teacher. Since you're here on my website, I'll start by telling you a few things about me. If you're just looking for the practical stuff on my site, look to your left or scroll down the page.
Before I went into teaching, I was a sign maker. I grew up in Kaukauna where my parents continue to run a small sign shop. I worked for the family business throughout my childhood and as an adult until 2001. I graduated from Kaukauna High School in 1990 and from Lawrence University in 1996 with a degree in English and a minor in Spanish.
I started working for the Freedom School District in 2001 as a tutor for ESL students. In 2003, I went back to Lawrence and got my teaching certification in Secondary Education(6-12) in both English and Spanish. In 2004, after all three of my own children were in school, I began working here full-time. I taught English as a Second Language and Spanish until 2011. That fall, I began teaching eighth grade Language Arts.
My husband and I live in Appleton. We have three children. Some of my interests are camping, traveling, and reading. I am a tent camper, I have been to Costa Rica with FHS students five times, and one of my favorite summer activities is sitting on a beach and reading a good book.
Enough about me...I'd be happy to hear from you, so please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
