Hi, parents of my eagles! I'm very responsive to emails and am always happy to help or answer questions.
Welcome to English IV and Strategic Writing!
As a student of both English and Political Science/Public Administration, I have experience with writing for both academic purposes and for the workforce. Before coming to AHS, I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English, Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, Master of Arts in English, and Master of Public Administration. After a short stint teaching a reading and writing class as Lamar University, I worked for the South East Texas Regional Planning Commission in Beaumont, TX, as a Planning Technician. As part of my job there, I conducted research, designed surveys, evaluated data, coordinated with a steering committee, and drafted plans, grants, and reports. I hope to bring my work experience into the classroom so that students have a real world application for the reading comprehension and writing skills that we practice in class.
Important Documents for English IV:
In English IV, we will be studying British Literature this year, focusing on the cultural importance of the works we study. Students will also be developing their writing skills so that they can be successful in college, trade school, and/or the workforce.
Important Documents for Strategic Writing:
In Strategic Writing, students will be learning strategies to help them better develop their writing and reading comprehension skills. This class seeks to empower students by helping them implement the tools that work for them.
Please contact me with questions or to schedule tutoring sessions. I want to help you make this year your most successful year of high school!
