8th Grade English Language Arts
Platte City Middle School

Hello and welcome to Ms. Lowry's 8th Grade English Language Arts class! I am so happy to be starting my 4th year in the Platte County family. This will be my 11th year of teaching and my 10th year of teaching 8th grade. I studied Elementary Education at Missouri Western State University but quickly learned that I had a passion for middle school. Since, I have completed several graduate degrees from Northwest Missouri State University and am super happy to be continuing my teaching journey at the middle school level.

It is my personal goal to help prepare my students to be self-taught learners in the digital world we now live in. As such, we will be exploring many real-world topics as well as learning the skills needed for their next level of education. We will be housing the majority of our classroom assignments and work in Google Classroom. You can access that and our weekly agenda through our Bitmoji Classroom.
