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 began a short unit attempting to identify bias in the media. This will continue next week.
English 9: This week, students began the study of the short story "The Most Dangerous Game". This will continue next week.

Practical Writing: This week, the students continued writing a research paper. This will continue next week.

English 11/12 (American Literature):  This week, students began our final unit, which is on the Modern Temper period. Authors studied this week included Willa Cather, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ernest Hemingway. This unit will continue next week with short stories from William Faulkner and John Steinbeck.

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:
