I am so excited to get to know all of you and begin your instruction on what it is like to be a high school English student and member of the Freshmen Academy. This year will be educational, challenging, and hopefully fun and engaging. Together we will begin to examine literature and writing from a more analytical perspective. I look forward to this year and hope you do as well! If at any time you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask. I am available during class, lunch, and after school; please do not wait until you are too far behind to ask for help. I want you to do well in Survey of Literature, but also remember that you are responsible for your own success. I look forward to working with you!
