Happy New Year!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The last semester of your child’s secondary education is here. Thank you for your support. I am eager to join them on the final steps of their high school journey as we read, write, and think critically. Below you will find our current areas of study.


1. Poetry Out Loud

2. Poetic Devices

3. European Poetry from the Middle Ages to Present


1. Persuasive: Taking a Stand

a. Current (Controversial) Issues

Monthly Choice Book

Students are responsible to read one book per month. Their first in class assessment will be February 6th. This means students should select a book of choice (non-fiction, fiction, drama, poetry, etc.) and read, completing the work by the 6th. On that day, or soon after, students will share their response to the text during class.

Please feel free to contact me:
