"Today a reader, tomorrow a leader" - Margaret Fuller
Hello! My name is Allison McGinnis and I am an English III teacher at Atascocita High School. This will be my 4th year as an 11th grade level English teacher, and 2nd year teaching at Atascocita High School. My primary goal as an English teacher is to nurture the development of empathy and compassion in my students. This year we will focus on what we call a "home", and how we construct a sense of belonging in our world. Students will interact with a variety of text from multiple viewpoints and create various styles of writing to explore their idea of what belonging means to them.
A little bit about myself: I am working towards earning my Master's in Education to further my knowledge as a teacher at Atascocita High School. Some of my interests and hobbies include reading, gardening, and running. I do have two little ones who enjoy running with me and helping me design our flowerbeds at home.
Do not hesitate to reach out to me if you ever have any issues or questions. I am only an email and/or phone call away!
