11th Grade English

American Literature ~ Bremen High School

Meet Mrs. Kristi Monesmith

To my students,


I really enjoy teaching and I hope that I can make some part of English class meaningful and fun for you. I know that many of you strongly dislike or hate English class, but I expect only the best from you and know that you will try your hardest. I trust that we will have a great and successful year. I look forward to getting to know each of you better. I’m hoping that not only do you grow your English skills, but that you also mature as a person ready for life beyond high school. I trust that we can work well together as a team to achieve success together for everyone. I would like everyone to be as positive as possible in order to keep our classroom a safe and fun environment. Hopefully, even if you don’t love English, you’ll love this class and learn something along the way.This is my eighth year at Bremen Senior High School the start of my eleventh year of teaching.


Sincerely,


Mrs. Monesmith
