I attended GVSU for my undergrad and double majored in History and English and minored in Social Studies with a Secondary emphasis. When I went back to school I went for my Master of Science in Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction with an additional masters cert in Technology Integration K-12. I have spent ten years in the classroom thus far and look forward to many more. I will be able to communicate with parents and students through Planbook, e-mail, Remind and through our Google Classroom.

I’m Mrs. Kyle Boswell, and I teach LMC English and I am South Haven Writing Center Director, as well as the Director of the Integrated Learning Center at South Haven High School. I’m in my tenth year of teaching and I love it! Many of my previous students would tell you that I am PASSIONATE about all things English. Whether it’s writing or literature, I’m a fool for English. If you’ve never had me as a teacher before, it’ll be a whole new experience for you.

I’m originally from Northern Michigan, Higgins Lake in particular, and went to college at Western Michigan University (GO BRONCOS). At WMU, I had the chance to get involved with everything from choir to Sigma Tau Delta, but spent most of my time working at the WMU Writing Center. I ended up working there for 4 1/2 years, with the last 2 1/2 working as the Undergraduate Assistant Director. I also taught English 1000 at WMU and loved my overall experience there. Since then, I’ve gotten my master’s degree in English and am now working on my PhD at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Composition, TESOL, and Applied Linguistics.
