• Welcome to my webpage!  This is my fourth year teaching at Coeur d'Alene High School.  I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the California State University at Chico, lived in Hailey, Idaho for a few years, and then spent 17 years teaching English, history, and yearbook in Northern California and two years teaching 8th grade language arts at Woodland Middle School here in Coeur d'Alene. My husband and I have three children:  Lily is 16, Matthew is 15, and William Atticus is 9.  We enjoy pretty much all outdoor activities, especially hiking and fishing.

    I teach English 9 and Reading Boost 9.  I post almost all lessons and assignments on Google Classroom. Class codes are as follows:  English 9 period 1 - 3yteqri; period 3 - rtytrib; period 4 - 6nbsm2o; period 6 - y62ry5c; Boost period 7 4xeq7jh.  This allows the students to log in.  If parents or guardians would like their own access, please email me a request using the email the school has on record, and I will send you an invitation.  Google Classroom also has links to websites we use, like vocabulary.com, under the "classwork" tab.  I will sometimes assign work on Google Classroom, but this is generally so I can see the students' work in progress.  Most often I do not grade online, but this is made clear in the class stream if I do.

    Get Remind messages by texting the following codes to 81010:  English 9 code =  @h22a9e and Boost code = @g8b3bc6

    Please contact me with any questions or concerns.  I am generally more accessible by email: jgardner@cdaschools.org
