Welcome students and parents!
I am excited to begin my third year teaching at Hickory Ridge High School! After growing up in the mountains of North Carolina I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where my love for English Education started. I love sharing my passion for literature, having meaningful interactions, and learning something new every day. My goal for this year is to prepare my students for the 21st Century through analyzing, interpreting, connecting to, and creating texts. Students will be challenged to do this through the Common Core Curriculum and the thought-provoking Essential Questions posed in each of our four units for English III. We will explore short stories, poems, novels, dramas, and foundational documents of the United States throughout the course.
My classes will utilize Google Classroom throughout the semester. There you will find class readings, assignments, unit calendars, and any additional information needed regarding the course. Parents are welcome to link their email to their student's account to receive weekly updates on assignments and student progress. If you are interested in having access to your child's account, please email me from the email you would like to have added and I will be happy to set it up!
I am excited for a semester full of learning and fun!
