English II & III - ELA Teacher - Refugee Outreach Coordinator
Welcome sophmores & Juniors!
I am pleased to have you as a member of my class. Please read through the following information to understand the procedures, policies and guidelines put into place to encourage learning.
English 11 is the third-year course for the secondary language arts curriculum. Emphasis is placed on increasing levels of self-direction and levels of engagement with a greater depth and breadth of reading and writing assignments than last year. Students will more keenly develop inquiry-based critical-thinking skills, as well as work towards demonstrating the ability to write more sophisticated essays with clearer theses and better synthesized and specific examples and quotes from more complex literature than before. In addition, students will explore the theme of the American Dream as we read American Literature classics.
After 12 years of teaching, I love making an impact while teaching students! This is my 7th year at CHS and I enjoy our diverse student population and our commitment towards excellence. My job as an educator at CHS has allowed me to for relationships with colleagues and create bridges with students. I have taught at all different levels, allowing me to experience students a wide range of students. I especially enjoy working with your ELD population and supporting students where they feel they most need help.
