Bachelor of Arts in English Writing & Rhetoric
Hello! My name is Ms. Lank, and I am so excited to be a teacher at Benold Middle School this year. I am new to the district, previously having taught at two different early college high schools, one in Dallas and one in Killeen.
As an English teacher, my vision is to help students discover the power that words hold. Whether we are learning about the basic parts of speech or organizing our thoughts into multi-paragraph essays, my hope is that students will use the knowledge they gain to become more effective readers, writers, and researchers.
A little bit about my background: I am originally from the Washington, D.C. area, and moved to Texas in 2012. I graduated from St. Edward's University in Austin with a degree in English Writing and Rhetoric, and obtained my teaching certificate a few months after graduating. Next year I hope to continue my education in the field of English at the graduate level. I currently live in Round Rock with my dog and two cats. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, painting, listening to music, getting outdoors, decorating, and spending time with friends.
