Mrs. McMullen - Language Arts/Social Studies

Mrs. McMullen

Many great people have commented on the importance of education but something John Steinbeck once said deeply resonated with me, “... Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the humanmind and spirit.” I became a teacher because I wanted to learn more about the colors of the human mind and spirit. I couldn’t see myself doing anything else. Education is a conduit that allows inspiration to become more than potential and ideas to spring into aspirations. I hope to be the type of mentor that inspires my students to stretch, grow and explore their inner readers, writers, poets, artists, inventors, and scholars. I believe that we are never finished learning.

Mrs. Evelyn Scott-McMullen, of Lucasville Ohio, is a recent graduate of Miami University with a B.S. in English Language Arts Education and a minor in Classical Humanities. There, she volunteered for Adopt-A-School and actively wrote poetry for Inklings, a collegiate literary and art magazine. Evelyn has also attended the International Summer School Study Abroad program in Stirling, Scotland, focusing on Philosophy and Psychology (as well as looking for Nessie). Evelyn completed her student teaching at Colerain High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. Her current obsessions are reading, Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and her pug, Ziggy Stardust.
