It's going to be a great year in room 216!!!
As we begin this new school year, I invite you to join me in making a commitment to grow, not only in knowledge but as an individual. You will learn SO much this year, and while I promise to give you everything I've got as a teacher, what you choose to bring to the table is what makes all the difference. If I give 100%, but you give 0%, 100%x0%=0%. You will get little to nothing out of this class. However, if I give 100% and YOU give 100%, then that equals like a gajillion percent (I'm an English teacher, you do the math)!
Please use this class website to your advantage. All assignments and lessons will be posted here to help you stay ahead of the game. In addition, there are helpful links that can provide assistance in grammar, vocabulary, and MLA style citations. I hope you love learning as much as I love teaching!!! I look forward to getting to know you throughout the year...
