My Students

My school focuses on preparing students for college paths and careers within the field of digital arts (film production, audio production, graphic design, video game design). I have a diverse group of kids who are energetic, creative, and all-around cool human beings.

This year's senior class will be 70-80 students, all of whom qualify for free lunch, and who range in literacy skills across a wide band from 5th-grade to college-level readiness.

They still shout quotes in the hallways from texts they've been assigned over the last few years. Please, help me to provide my excited, inquisitive scholars with the support they need to achieve their dreams.

My Project

Each of these books will help me to prepare students for college and life beyond high school.

My senior English class focuses on themes of struggle, change, and existentialism to help my students think productively about where they're headed and how they'll get there.

My classroom focuses on independent thinking, personal responsibility, and open-mindedness. My chosen texts are common titles in early-level college courses, and I'd like my students to leave my care as prepared as they can possibly be.

Students will use these texts as the basis for a number of essays and other writing projects throughout the year.
