English I Teacher
My name is Shaunie Friday, and I am delighted to be starting my fourth year of teaching English I (Freshman English) at Berean Christian. I am the daughter of two spectacular Christian teachers, and, following their lifelong example, I have a deep and tender place in my heart for investing in the lives of high school students. I have been married to my husband, Tony, for 33 blessed years, and we have two wonderful grown children, one of whom graduated from Berean Christian in 2009.
While fulfilling my (first and fondest) dream of being a stay-at-home mother and homemaker, I also honed my writing skills writing for a small magazine and for my blog, Up the Sunbeam. When my kids were out of high school, I turned my attention to fulfilling the other cherished dream that had lived in my heart since high school—the dream to become an English teacher. I returned to school and earned both my B.A. (2016) and M.A. in English (2018). After graduating, I was honored to have an article published in The Lincoln Humanities Journal. My time as a student was a joy, and I am now thrilled to be living my dream as a teacher. God has been so gracious to invite me to serve Him and my beloved students here at Berean, and I could not be more grateful!
I love words! I love literature! I love to learn, and I am excited every day about engaging with the amazing young people God brings to my classes! My prayer and purpose as a teacher is to inspire my English students to a lifelong love of learning, thinking, reading, and writing. Everything we study in English I will be through the lens of a bible-based, Christian worldview, and we work together to notice and learn from the connections between the stories we study and God's big story.
If you have any questions related to my class, please feel free to email me (the best way to contact me)! If you would like me to call you, please send me an email that includes your phone number and a window of time in which you are available, and I will be happy to give you a call.
In His Grip,
