"We, the members of the DPS 6-12 English Department, are dedicated to promoting independent, curious, and critical thinkers who read, write, speak, and listen in a way that demonstrates understanding of and appreciation for a variety of classic and contemporary literature and the power of language. We seek to develop—in all of our students—empathy, intellectual courage, and the ability to navigate the complexities of the world around us."
Francis Janosco, the English Department Chair for Middlesex Middle School and Darien High School, has taught in the district for 14 years. _______________________
