Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! 
I am excited to welcome you to my classroom. Our goal this year will be to improve our reading, writing and critical thinking skills. We will all work together to show growth and reach our full potential. I promise to give you 100% of my effort and energy and in return I will ask the same from you. It will be hard work, but it will be so worth it. 
This is my 15th year in the classroom and my 3rd year here at Buford High School. I firmly believe that this is the best place to teach and learn. Go Wolves!
All course content can be found in Canvas. Daily work, links, etc. will all be housed here. Thank you!
A Little About Mrs. Nagel...
I absolutely LOVE being a teacher. I started teaching in 2005 and have never stopped! I have a BSED in English Education from Missouri State University, a MED in Language and Literacy from the University of Georgia and an Ed.S. in Curriculum and Instruction from Lincoln Memorial University.  
I have a daughter, Olivia, who is eleven years old and a son, Cameron, who is eight years old. We adore watching them play softball and baseball and can often be found on the fields...it's genuinely our favorite place to be. 
Fun facts:
I lived in Germany when I was younger.
I've been on safari to Africa
I was raised in a military family and moved often when I was younger. (Go ARMY!)
I am a die hard St.Louis Cardinals fan.
French fries are my favorite food 
My son was the first boy born on my side of the family in over 50 years!
My son is color blind...so is my dad!
My daughter was born on Halloween and all the hospital staff were dressed in costume during delivery.
