• Lauren Poole is an 8th grade Language Arts teacher with a Master's in Instructional Design. I love using technology to make my content more effective, engaging, and accessible. I live in Newburgh, Indiana with my husband, Thomas, and our two young kids, Piper and Howie, that keep us entertained and exhausted. The ways to my heart are coffee, donuts, traveling, make-up, comedy, and true crime. Emily Opell currently teaches English 9 at Castle High School in Newburgh, Indiana. Over the last nine years, she has taught English/language arts to students in grades 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. In addition to teaching, Emily coaches tennis and enjoys spending time with her family, including her four-year-old son Vincent.
