English Language Arts

Welcome to English 9, Honors English 9, English 10, AP Lang., and Peer Counseling!
These classes are all about becoming stronger learners: curious, creative, critical, communicative, caring, and able to solve problems by devising intelligent solutions.
The world is a complex place and you have a very important role in both understanding it and changing it.  I hope this class will support you to do both. We will explore questions about the human condition, people's struggles, technology and visions of what life and society could and should be like.
You will read, write, and engage in meaningful discussions.  If you have never liked reading, you will grow to love it, and if you already love reading, you will connect and think more deeply about what you read.  You will work with your classmates and build our class as an academic community so that you can take risks, learn, and be your best. 
My desire is to support you for college, multiple careers, and life as a responsible global citizen. 
I look forward to our work together as teacher, students and parents/family! If you need to communicate with me, please talk to me in person or email me at
I hold Office Hours (tutoring) after school on Wednesdays from 3:15 to 4:15 in room 354.   Alternately, you can always talk to me to set up a tutoring appointment on a different day if needed.
