Ms. Steele

I am the 8th grade English teacher. This is my 26th year at Hardin, 27th year total. 

My conference period is first period, and if you need to contact me, please call the school at 936.298.2054, or you can email me at

This year, per the new ELAR curriculum at Hardin, students will read a text a day, learn vocabulary from that text, and practice vocabulary, comprehension, and inferencing skills. Tests will be given over learned skills every two weeks.  

If your child is absent, it is his/her responsibility to obtain their make up work. If they make below a 70 on a test, they are encouraged to do corrections, either before school or during NEST time, for a correction grade of no higher than a 70. 

Most all work is done on the Chromebook, so students can access their work at any time, and anywhere they have internet.

I look forward to a great 2023/2024 year!  Go Hornets!
