EMMS 8th Grade Teachers…

Hi there! I’m Mr. Corbin, and I teach 8th grade ELA. This will be my 9th year in the district. I live with my girlfriend, Brittany, and our three kids: Kinnley, 7th grade; Addington, 1st grade; and Duke, who is 4 years old. In our free time, my family likes to be outside, watching the Hawks and Minnesota Vikings play football, and playing on the Nintendo Switch.I truly enjoy teaching the 8th grade level each year and getting to know the new group of students. We do a lot of hard work, but hopefully there is some fun along the way!

Hello, I’m Cale Easton! I teach 7th and 8th grade social studies.

My name is Sam Ronan and I teach 6th grade math and science. This will be my fourth year at the middle school…time flies! In addition to teaching, I also coach cross country, basketball, and track and field. In 2018 I graduated from Iowa State University (Go Cyclones) with a degree in K-8 Education. Originally, I am from a western suburb of Chicago called Downers Grove. After spending four years of college in Iowa, I decided that Iowa is the place for me!

Hello, I’m Courtney Wolken! I teach 7th and 8th-grade science. I have been teaching secondary science in Iowa for 15 years.  You may have seen our kiddos Amelia and Austin around.  I look forward to helping East Marshall students navigate 7th and 8th-grade science.
