I teach four blocks of English 11. The goal this year for 11th graders is to explore who you are as student and a human being. That is why we will explore a variety of countries, and belief systems which will hopefully challenge you to think about life in a new way. Students will also receive test prep. for the new SAT test in April. I also teach one 9th grade class. This class will explore literature in a way to create a solid foundation to become a better reader and writer, but to also prepare you as a student for the next three years in high school.
I will be using Schoology and trying out the new program of Google classroom. I will let students know eventually which one I will primarily use for important information.
I have been an English teacher for 18 years, and a Reading Specialist for 10 years at Golden High School. I am now excited to be joining the Green Mountain family. I am a certified Reading teacher, and am endorsed in English Language Learners (ELL) and AP Literature. I’ve also coached soccer and track, and taught/ sponsored a variety of clubs and programs, including an a cappella club and a costume club.
