Welcome to English 9 and English 10 in the L.A. High Magnet!
I hope to let you to be the best learner you can be: curious, communicative, critical, caring, creative, and active.
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 be an asset that allows you to do both. We will explore critical questions about the human condition, people's struggles, and dreams of what life and society could be like.
You will read. You will write. You will engage in meaningful discussions about your ideas. You will create. If you have never liked reading, you will grow to love it, and if you already love reading, you will think more deeply about what you read. You will help to build our class as a comfortable and caring academic community so that you can learn and be your best. You will work together with others and learn to soar together with your classmates.
My desire is to support you for college, multiple careers, and life as a responsible global citizen. I look forward to our adventure together as teacher, students and parents/family! If you need to communicate with me, please talk to me in person or email me at email@example.com.
I provide tutoring after school on Mondays from 3:15 to 4:45 in room 354.
