Dr. Conrad 16/17
Welcome to Dr. Conrad's English Classroom!

It is my privilege to be teaching for my seventh year at Cowan High School.  I will be teaching English 9, American Literature and Composition, English Literature and Composition, and English 12.  Course content will follow what is in Cowan's Course Selection Guide and will be delivered primarily through Writer and Reader Workshop.  Emphasis will be placed on the writing and reading connections, so students understand that writing improves our reading, and reading improves our writing.  Reading and writing improve our thinking! 

As a proud Ball State graduate (BA '88, MAE '09, Ed. S '12, Ed. D '15), I bring over thirty years of experience to the Cowan classroom, ranging from teaching middle school to university students, being an administrator, and working at the site and regional levels of multi-family residential property management.

My husband, Jon, and I have been married for 29 years.  He is a political science professor at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion.  We are the proud parents of two sons:  Daniel and Caleb.  Daniel, 24, is a cybersecurity analyst; Caleb, 22, is a computer engineer at Horner Automation.  Both of our sons were married in 2020; we now have two daughters:  Cassandra and Jennie.

I look forward to an exciting school year!  Remember to check for homework assignments in Google Classroom.
