Hello all! My name is Ms. Morgan Harms, and I am an 8th grade English language arts teacher. I have a bachelor's degree in secondary education from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and a minor in English. I have two dogs--Salinger (yes, he's named after the author) and Chelsea. In my free time, I love to run, hike, kayak, and read. My teaching philosophy is rooted in the relationships I build with my students and getting them excited about reading and writing. I believe learning begins when students feel that they are cared for and valued. I am excited about joining the Monroe team, and I'm looking forward to this school year!
