Welcome to  the 2017-2018 school year!  I look forward to another great year with NHS students and faculty.  During the semester, we will 
read short stories, plays, classics and contemporary novels.......and we will write!!!! My goal is to ignite in my students a love of literature 
and language. 

Food for Thought - There are some things that we cannot choose in our lives, but our attitude is always a choice. I enjoy meaningful
quotes, and this is a favorite of mine concerning attitude:         “The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life....The                                         remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will                                         embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact                                         that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The                                         only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our                                         attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I                                         react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”                                                                                                         C.Swindoll So, it is with that perspective that I begin my new year. I am happy to meet my new students; I am eager about the material
we will cover; and I have great expectations concerning all that we will accomplish.
