Welcome classes of 2019 and 2022! I am thrilled I get to be your English teacher this year. We are going to have a great year developing reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. I can't wait to get to know you all! I use my website to post the basic lessons/assessments we do on a weekly basis so you know what to expect and what materials you will need to bring to class with you each day. Make sure to charge those iPads!
I use Google Classroom for hand outs and such, and most work will be submitted into turnitin.com. I love teaching English because it is literature driven. We are going to discuss all about what makes a good story. We will study novels, plays, and poems. We will write responses, essays, timed writes, tap into our creativity, and have a lot of fun while building skills. This is my 21st year of teaching, and I'm excited I get to spend it with you all.
Grab a great book, and I'll see you on Wednesday!
Please know my door is always open.
“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.” — Joyce Carol Oates
“A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.” — Madeleine L’Engle
