Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

Parents: I am honored to be teaching your children this year! I know that you are sending me the people who are most precious to you in this world, and I take that responsibility very seriously. My teaching technique is based on my knowledge, experience, and training as a teacher, but also as a parent. I have two teenagers at China Spring High School, so we are in this together! I welcome any and all communication. Please feel free to email or call me so that we can discuss any questions or concerns that you have throughout the year. 

Students: Woohoo! I am BEYOND excited that you are in my class! For some of you, this is my fourth year with you! Can you believe that? This year is going to be fantastic! Please know that I am here to answer any questions that you may have and to help you through this school year.  Lesson plans will be posted weekly to help keep you informed of what is going on in AP English Language and Composition and English I Honors.  Feel free to email me at any time at afaulkner@chinaspringisd.net.
