Welcome to the English Language Arts Department's Webpage!
The Secondary English Department is comprised of teachers from grades 6-12. Although the age level of our students is varied, our vision is the same. (Right click here>) We couldn't have said it better!
Along with our quest to share the beauty of language is our desire for our students to understand the absolute power of language. Our goal is to empower students with the communication skills they need to support perspectives, move audiences, reflect emotions, and solve problems.
It is no doubt an exciting time in education. We encourage students to pose more questions than answers. We encourage them to listen as much as speak. We want them to know how to follow the conventions of language, but also be empowered to ignore them in their creativity. Fortunately, this constant push and pull actually energizes the teachers and the students as we all try to prepare for an unknown future. Together, we are all learners.
If you have any questions about our curriculum, assessments, choice of texts, or description of courses, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I travel from building to building, but if you leave a message with one of the administrative assistants, I will be sure to return your call.
Email is an even better way to contact me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
