Ms. Terriane Ward
I am Ms. Ward. I am a 9th and 10th grade Communication Arts teacher at Hazelwood East High School.
I graduated from Truman State University with a Bachelors Degree in English. I went on to work at a homeless shelter and worked in early childhood education for several years. I returned to school to earn my Master of Fine Arts in Writing from Lindenwood University. After time spent as a teaching assistant and youth development specialist at a private girls' home, I returned to public school as a substitute teacher and paraprofessional. I then decided to become a full-time teacher and returned to school at UMSL to work towards a Masters Degree in Education and well as my teaching certification.
One of my goals this year is to inspire students to find their voices through writing.
