Hi everyone, I'm Ms. Bond! I am going into my eighth year of teaching at NPHS, and 
twelfth year of teaching overall. I have worked in a few different schools, both middle and 
high schools, and NPHS is by far my favorite school. I feel lucky to be here and I 
hope you all feel the same way.

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York. I attended Dartmouth College for my B.A. in 
English and Franklin Pierce University for my M.Ed in English education. I am 
credentialed to teach both English and the social sciences. I have also taken many 
post-graduate courses at UCSD and am certified in teaching gifted and talented 
students, as well as in counseling students through the college application process. I 
tutor students outside of school for the SAT/ACT (critical reading and writing), 
college essays, AP English (both the language and literature courses), AP European and
American history, and all skills pertaining to English and the social sciences.

This website is for students, parents, and colleagues to access resources from my classes.

If you are one of my students, please familiarize yourself with the sections of this website 
that pertain to you. The "Communication" tab is for all my classes. You must enroll in 
both Turnitin and Remind if you are a student in my class, and familiarize yourself 
with how to log in to and utilize your school Google account. 

"General Links" contains links to educational resources such as information on proper
 citation, as well as links to the online texts of (some of the) books we will read in class.

There are also two specific sections on this website for each class that I teach- one has 
the agenda and homework for each day, and the other has documents that are used in 
class for you to download, including PowerPoint presentations.

Lastly, there is a link to the page about the school's writing center, which I coordinate. 
There, you can find out more about the writing center and what it provides as a resource,
where/when it is open, and how to request an appointment, among other things.

My goal is for all of my students to improve in their reading, writing, communication, 
and critical thinking skills in order to walk out of my classroom a more informed, 
articulate, and literate individual than when they entered it. I believe this is a 
universally important and very practical goal, and an essential one to meet in the 
quest to create an intelligent, caring, and active citizenry who will contribute to 
our world in a positive way.
