A. Juengst

English Teacher, Grade 8

I’m proud to be a Phoenix! Despite the challenges we face given the current pandemic, I am excited to welcome and form a thriving learning community with this year’s 2020-2021 eighth grade class.

A little about me: I am married to a tech-loving engineer, and together we have two kids, both graduates of APS who now identify as Tar Heels. I am an avid reader and runner. Indie bands fill my Spotify playlist, and I never miss The Daily (NYT) podcast. Mostly what I love, though, is engaging middle schoolers as readers, writers and speakers; their spirit, imagination, and passion create the soul of our classroom community.
