Whether you are starting the year in distance learning or here in-person with us, I am excited to work with students again!

My job is to help my students learn. If you need anything from me during the year, you can email or call me via the contact information listed below. 

English 11/12 (British Literature):  This week we began the study of the epic Beowulf. The study of this classic tale will continue into early next week. We will then continue the Anglo-Saxon literature study with the poem "The Wanderer".
 

English 10: We are beginning the school year with a unit on business and technical writing. This week, students wrote a resumé and accompanying cover letter. Next week, we will begin a unit on technical writing.

Practical Writing:
 Students began the school year in an academic writing unit. This week, they wrote an expository essay. The unit continues next week with the writing of a persuasive essay.

English 9: The first month of school in English 9 will begin with a 4 week essay writing unit. This week, students wrote a narrative essay. Next week, students will write a persuasive essay.

Every Class, Every Day: 

Additionally, each day our class period begins with a "bellringer" activity. The students will complete an activity with the primary purpose of relating to informational text.

Please check your child's progress in my class through PowerSchool or Schoology. I update my grades in Schoology, as assignments are turned in. All grades in Schoology are current to the second. I sync my Schoology grades with PowerSchool weekly (usually every Thursday) if not more frequently. This is a great way to see how your child is performing in my classes as well as check if they have any missing work. 

If, at any time, you have questions or need assistance, please contact me at the phone number or email below. Email is the preferred method to use during school hours, so as not to interrupt class:
