My name is Liana Giles and I taught elementary for one year before I realized that middle school is the place I needed to be! I haven't looked back and this will be my sixteenth year teaching (you will surely wonder how a person so young-looking has been doing this for so long)! As I love most things about middle school kids, I can also say that my own two children are NOT in middle school, yet! My daughter, Belle, and son, Finn, have grown up at Clay Middle and will have a lot of artwork to share with my students. I love many things (besides middle school kids) and try to enjoy these activities as time permits. I hale from the great state of I-L-L (anyone finish this?)....Illinois and came to Indiana after teaching five years in the Chicago suburbs (mainly because my husband promised he was bringing me to the "promise land"). We enjoy life in Indiana, although I never figured I would be a Hoosier!
I am excited to be back in 8th grade and look forward to a great year learning how our history connects to our present!
