English

My name is Greg Hall. I teach English at Twin Springs High School. My favorite movie is The Ten Commandments. I love all the Star Wars movies. I love playing and listening to music. I'm stuck in the 80's. I enjoy camping and outdoor activities. My philosphy for success in the classroom is: Hard work produces good results! Teachers and parents working together will strengthen a child's performance and enhance his/her skills for life long learning.

This fall (2019), I will begin my sixteenth year of teaching, fourteen of which I will have taught in Scott County. Also, it will be my fifth year here at Twin Springs. I come from a family of teachers, and after years of working in the business world, I decided to answer the call for teaching. It has been my best career decision I have ever made. Many people have asked me why I chose English as a major and the answer is simple; it is the key that opens all the doors to other subjects! Reading and writing communicates all the information for exploration and learning.
