Greetings Good Hope School Parents & Students:

I am delighted to be joining the Upper School English Department and to be teaching English 11: The Literature of America, 10th grade World History II and an elective on JAZZ in America during the 2010-2011 school year.  I will endeavor to keep you all abreast of what is happening in the classroom by regularly updating this website.  Please visit often and give me feedback about the kinds of things you would like to have posted here.  Individual pages for each class can be accessed on the sidebar at the left side of this page.  I will be posting both semester-long rough syllabi and more detailed two-week unit syllabi (with homework assignments and due dates etc. listed) on the individual course pages.  Thanks very much.
