Miss Kolleen Maveus


I'm so thrilled to be a part of Farnsworth Aerospace Middle School! I joined the Farnsworth team at the start of the 2019-20 school year with many years of teaching at the secondary level under my belt, having been teaching since 1996.

During the school year, I teach 6th Grade English Language Arts (Readers and Writers Workshops) and occasionally 7th Grade English Language Arts. My summers include teaching 11th Grade English (credit recovery) and 8th Grade (reading & writing). Working with students is a great passion of mine, as I love to see students strive for dreams and build layers of successes.

Additionally, I've spent 17 years working as a freelance editor and ghostwriter.

When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Other activities that fill my time include crafting, baking, playing piano, reading, watching sports, and being a part of anything outdoors.

It is my joy to work with Farnsworth students, and help them to achieve great things in Reading and Writing while opening new doors of possibilities!

Be sure to check out the NEW literary magazine of Farnsworth linked below. Quarterly newsletters are also a way for families to stay current with work being done in my classes.
