"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."
I am thrilled to be your English teacher and consider it a privilege to teach and work with you. I have taught English since 1999 and have spent the last twenty-five years involved in various youth work. In other words, I enjoy teaching, working with, and encouraging young people.
The “performance” aspect of Language Arts is my passion. Whether it is performing as a writer, a speaker, or just enjoying a good story, the next nine months will involve many “performance” opportunities for reading, writing, speaking, listening, and collaborating with the goal of helping you go beyond your potential as a reader and writer. Using the Common Core State Standards for English/Language Arts as a guide for instruction, I will strive to help you achieve fluency and competency in English.
