Greetings! I Am Excited to Be Joining Shepton This Year As an English Ii/Ii Honors Instructor. I’ve Taught for 12 Years Now in Public Charter & Private School Settings Starting in Queens & Brooklyn, South Oak Cliff, & Garland. I Hope to Provide Students with a Well-rounded Perspective on English That Is Aimed to Develop Their Own Personal Voices & Perspectives As Powerful Readers and Writers. 

In This Course, Students Learn to Apply Their Understandings of Reading and Writing Processes to a Variety of Genres Including Poetry, Drama, Fiction, Informational, and Argumentative.  Students Will Study Both Classic and Contemporary Texts with an Emphasis on Author’s Purpose and Message.  The Use of the Writer’s Notebook, the Synthesis and Presentation of Ideas, and Frequent Opportunities for Teamwork and Collaboration Are Also Key Components of This Course.
