Welcome to the 2021-22 English web page!

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. 

Here is a rundown of the happenings in my class:

English 10: This week, students continued a creative writing unit, which is now culminating in the writing of a short story. The work on that began this week. Students wrote the first two scenes of their story.
 
English 9: This week, students continued the study of the classic American Novel, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Students wrote an essay on the novel and began watching the video with the purpose of evaluating it.
 
Practical Writing: This week, the students began a unit on resumé writing
 
English 11/12 (American Literature):  This week, we continued study of 1870-1915 literature, with a primary focus on The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain.We began the novel this week.

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 (Parent Portal link is to the left on this page) 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:
