• Welcome to Mrs. Mackley's 8th Grade English Language Arts class! I am thrilled to start my third year here at Prairie-Hills Junior High, and I am looking forward to working with you and your students this year. My goal as an educator is to inspire young individuals to value learning through tenacity, discipline, and enjoyment. We will be learning how to advance our reading, writing, and speaking skills while also having fun. I look forward to meeting with all of you and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at lmackley@phsd144.net, or my Google email at lmackley@phesd144.com.
