  • Hi! I’m Mrs. Engstrom! 

    Welcome to 2021-2022 School Year!

    Hello students and parents! I am so excited to be working with you all each day of this fabulous journey! I wanted to send out this letter so you all know a little bit about me.

    This is my fourth year at Hephzibah High School. I graduated with my Bachelor's in 2018, and I obtained my Master's in Instruction with a STEM/STEAM endorsement. Reading and writing are both passions of mine. I won the Patricia Lesher Essay Award and have one published creative non-fiction piece in an online literary journal. I have always done some form of teaching, whether it be in church for Sunday School, or simply being a mentor to youth.

    I have a two sons - an 8 year old and an almost 3 year old. I also got married in April of this past year. 

    Some other fun facts about me:

    I love learning about different cultures. I am multi-ethnic - my mom is South Korean. I have traveled to Russia for a mission trip back in 2010. I was also able to attend an International Conference back in 2008 and 2009 when I was in high school and got to meet other students from all over the world.

    I’ve been ballroom dancing for about 5 years. I am also a photographer.

    I am a Marvel and Star Wars fan.

    I also do a little bit of writing on the side as well when I have some free time.

    My favorite genre of books, music, and movies typically depends on my mood.

    This will definitely be an interesting year as we navigate some temporary norms, as we learn about different technologies as well, but it will be a learning experience for everyone.

    I am looking forward to this year together! :)



    Ms. Phoenix
