Mr. Bodey- All About Me

I'm Aaron Bodey, and I teach English III, Journalism, and Practical Writing. I am originally from Indiana, and I've lived in 3 other states, but I finally made it to Texas eight years ago. I came to Texas to attend Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) as a Youth Ministries Major, but in my sophomore year, I transitioned into English Education and I've never regretted it. I married my wife, Kerri, in 2011, graduated from SAGU in 2014, and was discharged from the Army after 8 years of service in December 2015. We have three amazing kiddos, Addie, Griffin, and Lily. We love living and working in Waxahachie. 
 
English III: This class is the junior level English course and it integrates both American Literature and Composition skills.
Practical Writing: This class is both a writing enhancement course and every day, workforce-related writing course. The first three quarters focus on improving students STAAR composition skills, and the fourth quarter focuses on writing skills they will need as members of the workforce all while discovering the links between leadership and professionalism.
Journalism: This class is an overview of Journalistic ethics, law, methods, and style. We also produce the school News Magazine, The Herd, which is now in its third year of production. 
Independent Study in Journalism: This is a leadership development course that focuses on building leadership skills within the context of Journalism. They will not only dig deeper into journalistic styles and skills, they will also peer-teach and act as section/student editors.
