Introduction to the Class:
Hi everyone! I am thrilled to meet you and walk alongside you this year! This class is a place of learning and growth. You will make mistakes, and so will I; but, it will be from those mistakes that we will learn the most and that will lead us to success. We will work hard in this class; we will build relationships with our peers, and we will hopefully gain new perspectives about life and about ourselves. The stories and texts that we will read are powerful. Let them change you. I am on your team, and my deepest desire is for you to succeed. Please let me know how I can help you this year. Welcome to high school!
How to Use this Website:
If you click on the pages to the right, you will find the syllabus, information about me, resources for each unit, and weekly schedules. Every Monday I will release the schedule for the week that will list all homework assignments, due dates, and upcoming events. Please use this resource to keep up with the class! If you ever have a question about an assignment, please send me an email.
Please have the following supplies with you every day:
• Notebook (composition or spiral will work)
• Binder or folder to keep up with work
• Fully charged laptop
• Red pen
• Loose- Leaf paper
• Headphones (must be able to connect to their laptop)
If your budget allows, and you would like to donate extra supplies to the class, then we could always use the following items:
- Paper (printer or colored)
- Ink for the in-class printer
