Welcome to English 8, Honors English, and AIS!
My name is Mrs. Steere (formally, Ms. Sylvester) and I am very excited to have your child in my ELA classroom, both virtually and personally. This school year will look a lot different than most, but I am confident that through the support of both you (parent/gudardian) and the community, your child will thrive this year. Along with the title of teacher, I am also referred to as Coach. I coach modfied soccer and am the assistant varsity track coach. I look forward to getting to know your child both in and outside of school!
I was born and rasied in Richfield Springs, New York on a small dairy farm. I graduated from Richfield Springs and went on to college at SUNY Oneonta. Within three years, I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in English and Education. I immidiately joined the workforce at a small, private school in Cooperstown, NY. Directly following my undergraduate graduation, I went back to SUNY Oneonta and recieved my Master's Degree in 5-12 Literacy within the year. I stayed at the private school for two more years before going over to RFA. In my free time, I love spending time with my husband and our two dogs: Mya and Lucy. I enjoy all things outdoors and am frequently found running or walking my dogs.
