Welcome to my virtual classroom where you will find important information for Communication Skills and English II courses. Students will begin with Communication Skills in the fall and finish up with English II in the spring semester, during which time they will take the state mandated EOC that counts 20% of their overall grade. Please refer to the course syllabus for detailed information concerning instruction during both semesters. I look forward to a successful school year in which my students will improve skills such as public speaking, writing, and reading comprehension.


Parents, Please send me an email so that I can add you to my google contact list. This will make it easier for us to communicate over the course of the school year. Thank you!
