WELCOME TO MRS. WARDEN'S CLASS
Thinkers. Communicators. Doers.
Hello, and welcome to the online home of my classroom. My name is Lindsey Warden, and I am entering my fifth year of teaching. I have previously taught grades 7-12, and undergraduates. I have a BA in English from Mercer University, where I also minored in History and Education. On August 24, I will graduate from Johns Hopkins University with an M.S.Ed. in Secondary Education. My research interests encompass project-based learning in the humanities, brain-targeted teaching, and justice-oriented curricula. I call Thompson's Station, Tennessee home, but I have lived and worked in south Georgia, north Mississippi, and my favorite place, right here in Memphis. In my free time, I enjoy travelling with my spouse, Don, and our son, Everett. Education is my absolute passion, and I am excited to learn and grow alongside my sixth graders this year.
