Mrs. Elizabeth Ewers
English Language Arts
9th and 10th Grade
Welcome! I’m glad you are here. The 2019-2020 school year is my first here at GHS, and I am so happy to be here teaching 9th and 10th grade ELA. It has always been my dream to be a high school English teacher, and after 3 years of teaching middle school ELA and technology, I am beyond excited to be a part of the GHS community.
A little about me: I am a Kansas City native and K-State grad. I spent two years living by the beach in Corpus Christi, Texas, and while I do miss the weather, I am a midwesterner through and through. I got married this summer to a Wichita native and fellow K-State grad, and we bought our first house in West Wichita. I love being a Kansas resident again!
It’s hard for me to choose a favorite book, but I love Ernest Hemingway, all things Harry Potter, early American literature, contemporary young adult books, and almost any nonfiction book. I rarely come across a book that I don’t like! My passion for reading came from a childhood spent curled up in various corners of my house reading anything I could find, and my parents and several of my elementary school teachers played a huge role in helping me find stories that I loved. It is my hope that every student who comes through my classroom finds a book that makes them love reading before the year ends!
Much of our coursework will be on Google Classroom this year, and you can find a calendar of assignments linked through Google Classroom for each class on my Calendar page.
