Hello My Name Is...

Sydney Hester

This is my 5th year at Howard, and I can't wait to watch my second group of freshmen graduate in May!

I graduated from Carson-Newman University in 2015 with my Bachelor of Arts in English and a license to teach 7th-12th grade. Howard was my first teaching position and is the only school that I've ever taught at. My first three years I taught 9th grade English, and I was lucky enough to get to move up with my last group of freshman to teach them 10th grade English! This year I'm so excited to teach both 9th and 10th grade within the Architecture and Engineering/Construction Future Ready Institute.

In my free time, I love to hike, rock climb, watch TV, read, and play with my 2 cats and my dog.

I'm so passionate about teaching English, and I'm especially passionate about teaching at Howard. I've grown to love my students, and it's been amazing to see my students unlock their full potential in my classroom.

For all classes except my Honors English 10 class, class assignments and instructions are available on Google Classroom or PowerSchool.
