Mr. Mike Edmonds
Dear Students: During this time while school is closed, I encourage you to visit our class page and view the available online resources for each of your subject areas. I would also encourage you to view YouTube resources on the Civil War for Social Studies. Take the position of a soldier from the North or the South and write a letter to me about your experiences. Turn your letter in to Mr. Edmonds when we return to school. In Science, view videos and read about the different types of fossil fuels and where they are located on Earth. How do we collect these fuels and how are they used.
I hope to see you back at Lamar following our Spring Break on April 6th. Stay safe during this time. Read, take a hike, get outside, play games, etc.
You can email me at email@example.com if you need any assistance or have a question.
See you soon,
This is my 37th year working in the Washington County School System. My first six years were spent teaching grades 3-5 at Boones Creek Elementary followed by 17 years teaching 5th grade at Boones Creek Middle School. My next 12 years were spent in administration at Gray, South Central, and Boones Creek Middle. I have returned to teaching in the classroom and I am excited to once again be teaching science and social studies. I am teaching all 8th grade science and social studies classes at Lamar.
Science has always been my first love in teaching. I worked several years as an environmental educator during the summers at Cedar Creek Learning Center and a few at the Clyde Austin 4-H Center. I also taught summer science programs for Washington County Students for several years.
I am married to my wife Cindy and we live in the Boones Creek Community. I have one daughter and two grandchildren. We are members of Boones Creek Christian Church. Cindy and I enjoy going to watch our favorite sports team play basketball - The Lady Vols! I am a 1976 graduate of Daniel Boone High School. I earned my B.S. degree and Master of Education degree in Elementary Education from East Tennessee State University. I earned my Education Specialist degree in School Administration from Lincoln Memorial University. I enjoy traveling and trout fishing.
