Welcome to Humanities 1 & English 7C/8C!



I plan on using this space as a tool to plan and organize daily Learning Objectives and Agendas for my Humanities 1 & Senior English classes. Daily Learning Objectives and Agendas can be found by clicking on the desired class' calendar and date.

Teacher Information
  • Teacher name: Ms. Egipto
  • Telephone Number: (619) 593-5426
  • E-mail address: tegipto@guhsd.net


  • Humanities 1 After-School Tutorials: Tues. 3-4pm (room 102)
**I am always looking for new ways to get information to students & parents regarding important upcoming assignments.  I will be writing the "Week-at-a-Glance" on the board every week, as well as sending e-mail "blasts" to students & parents, and keeping an up to date calendar on this website, complete with attachments of all handouts.  Also, I will be allowing students to sign up for Remind.com, which sends text messages of important reminders straight to their phones!  Parents are also encouraged so sign up for this free service, as well.
