Welcome to English with Ms. Duryea! This class will be an opportunity for you to explore and build upon your own writing, thinking, and communication styles as we explore primarily American authors. You will be growing your critical thinking, writing, and analytical skills through the reading of literature and non-fiction. We definitely have a lot of work to accomplish this year, so it is important to be focused and organized. I will do everything I can from my standpoint to assist – I look forward to going on this journey together!

Hi! I am Ms. Duryea, and this is my fourth year teaching at LHS. I have two bachelor degrees from Walsh University (Adult & Young Adult Integrated Language Arts Education and English), and I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in English from Ohio Dominican University. Teaching is not just a career for me; it is a vocation. I love discussing literature and its relevance in the real-world and how it allows people with various perspectives to connect and learn from each other. I look forward to growing with you this year!
