Hello, and welcome to my page! My name is Ms. Lank, and I am an 8th Grade Language Arts Teacher here at Benold.
Some background info about me: This will be my fifth year in education, and my third at Benold. In 2014, I graduated from St. Edward's in Austin with a BA in English Writing & Rhetoric. Prior to working in GISD, I worked at early college high schools in both Killeen and Dallas, where I helped formulate curricula for the college reading/writing classes that I taught. Originally, I am from Maryland: I moved to Austin in 2012 to complete my degree, and fell in love with it!
I currently live in Round Rock. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking; swimming; creating art; reading and writing; cooking and baking; and spending time with my pets, friends, and family.
