Mr. Adam E. Rowland
I believe in two things as a teacher: we are all capable of greatness, and there should be a reason behind everything taught and learned. As such, my students can always expect my very best effort, and there will always be a reason for the things I present in class. I have only ever taught middle school, so you can expect me to be fair, reasonable, and incredibly understanding.
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in English with an emphasis on creative writing, I have done graduate work in the area of English Composition, I recently earned a Master's Degree in Educational Technology, and I am currently finishing a doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction. I have a deep passion for creativity: I have written a novel, I have published poetry, and I've even written and performed original music. In my spare time (what there is of it), I enjoy traveling and spending time with my two boys and wife Michelle, running, and finding new ways to reach my students.
I began teaching in 1998 at Mira Loma Middle School, and I was fortunate enough to be able to learn a great deal from my parents who also taught there. I transferred to the Murrieta Valley Unified School District in 2004, and I have taught at Warm Springs Middle School ever since. This year, I am teaching 7th grade Language Arts.
