• Welcome Freshmen! 


    This is going to be a great year! Whether it be by fate, or merely happen-stance you have become a student of my classroom. I have about 190 days to instill in you a love for English. It isn't going to always be easy, but we will work together to make sure you find where in English your passion resides. We will read. We will write. We will discover what it means to be human through text, videos, and in depth discussions. 


    Here is a brief overview of what we'll be doing this semester.


    Unit #1- Personal Narratives

    Unit #2- Short Stories, and analysis writing introduction

    Unit #3- Of Mice and Men

    Unit #4- The Odyssey


    Please read my syllabus, for direct class information. Above all else, communicate! I will work with any student who needs help if they communicate with me. An email or walking up to me during class is the easiest way to talk to me. We all have bad days, but don’t let a bad day lead into a downward trajectory towards failing.

    Communicate, Communicate, COMMUNICATE!
