Mrs. Mosher's Classroom!
I live in Ypsilanti with my husband, who is a detective with the Eastern Michigan University Police Department. My son is currently living in St. Louis, working as an executive chef at a downtown restaurant. Before entering the teaching field, I had a 17 year career in banking.
I moved to Michigan in 1992 to finish my bachelor’s degree and pursue my desire to teach.
I graduated with honors from Eastern in 1995 certified to teach English and Social Studies. I was originally assigned to O.W. Best in 1997 to teach Reading, but over the years I have taught 7th & 8th grade Reading, 7th Grade Social Studies & Government, 7th Grade English, Newspaper, Language Arts Workshop, and 8th Grade Language Arts, both regular track and honors. So far, at AHS, I've taught 9th Grade Honors English, 10th Grade English, & 11th Grade English (regular track & honors), Creative Writing, US History, and American Government!
I finished my master’s degree in Social Foundations of Education in 2004. This degree looks at the impact of political decisions, social problems, issues of gender & race on the educational setting. It was a truly eye-opening experience. Investigating these issues has made me a better and more politically active teacher.
I am looking forward to an exciting and action-packed year teaching your child. Please contact me if you have any questions about what we are doing in class or your child's achievement. My door is always open!
