Welcome AECHS juniors! I am excited (and admittedly anxious) to work with all of you in English/LA 11. After teaching for the last twenty years at Ellet High School, I am eager to take on new and meaningful challenges. Together I hope that all of us can enhance our perspectives, through varied reading, purposeful writing and other Language Arts pursuits.
