Welcome to the 2020-21 school year.

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 11/12 (British Literature):  This week, students finished a unit on 17th century British Literature. We focused on the writing of John Bunyan, John Donne, Ben Johnson, and John Milton. Next week, we will begin a study of the literature from the Romantic Age. We will begin with works from Wordsworth

English 10: This week, students began writing their argumentative research paper. Next week, students will write their works cited page, revise their rough draft, and submit a final draft for grading.
 
Practical Writing:
 Students continued an essay writing unit in one section. In the other section, students continued analysis writing.

English 9: This week, students began the study of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. They should have read chapters 1-5 for Monday. The study of this novel will continue next 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 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:
