A Word With…. Angie Edmonds

A Word With… features those who work in the Wyoming community, but who may not necessarily live in Wyoming. This month our featured community member both lives and works in our community - Angie Edmonds, Wyoming High School English Teacher and Department Chairperson. Angie attended Wyoming High School, sent her sons to Wyoming High School, and teaches at Wyoming High School – so it is safe to assume she is an expert on all things high school…. but read on to learn much more about Wyoming’s Angie Edmonds.  

Name: Angie Edmonds
Title: Wyoming High School English Teacher
Job Description: I currently teach A.P. English Language and Composition to Juniors and English 9 Honors with Freshman.  I am also the English Department Chairperson and one of the advisors for the WHS Student Council

Years in this position:  I have been teaching at WHS for 14 years and teaching overall for 25 years.
What was your path leading to your current career in Wyoming?  I am a 1989 graduate of Wyoming High School. After high school I attended Ohio Wesleyan University where I received my degree. Immediately out of college I began my teaching career at Archbishop Moeller High School where I taught English and coached JV basketball.  I moved onto Mason High School where I taught English and coached soccer and basketball for 10 years. When my children were of school age I was looking to make a change and wanted to put them in Wyoming Schools so when an English opening happened at the high school I immediately applied. I have been teaching and coaching at Wyoming High School ever since.

What is the best book you have read this year?  This is a really tough one for me.  I am an avid reader and I read many different genres.  Some of my favorite titles from this year would be The Nightingale, Educated, The Great Alone, A Man Called Ove, and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.

Growing up, who was your favorite teacher?  My favorite teacher was Ms. Volley.  She was my 8th grade Language Arts teacher at St. James. She made English fun, accessible, and really helped me to grow as a student and as a person.
What is your favorite sports team? Right now I am a big time Marian University Football team fan. My oldest son Jake plays for them and they are ranked #2 in the country. I am also a big Wyoming High School football and basketball fan as my youngest son Joey plays for both.  Joey will be playing basketball for the University of Findlay next year so I anticipate the Oilers being one of my new favorite teams.

Where would your dream vacation take you?  This summer my husband and I are taking a 25th anniversary trip for two weeks to Europe. We will be visiting Rome, Venice, Florence, Lucerne, Paris and London. We are really looking forward to it.

What is the best play or musical you have ever seen live?  I absolutely love Phantom of the Opera.

What is one thing the Wyoming community does not know about you?  I grew up here and have seen many of my family members move to the Wyo in recent years.  As of today there are 23 Mouchs/Edmonds living in Wyoming.  It is awesome to see family members all over town and in my classroom.

What is your favorite holiday tradition?  This one is easy, on Christmas Eve the entire Mouch family gets together at my aunt and uncles house. We eat great food and sing Christmas songs. This is the absolute best. I have a large family who really enjoys spending quality time together.
