Degrees and Certifications:
Dr. LaRell Bissett
I teach International Baccalaureate English IV & on-level English IV. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, a Master of Arts degree in English, & a Ph.D. in Humanities with emphasis on literary studies. I have taught all levels of English classes ranging from high school to juniors in college. The best part about teaching is the students! I prefer teaching seniors & enjoy watching their minds grow. In IB English IV students learn to write commentary (analysis) of both unseen passages & familiar texts, to focus on critical thinking skills, to read & analyze literary texts, and to deliver formal oral presentations. Students in on-level English learn to review & proofread for grammatical errors, to read closely, both novels & short pieces, to think critically, to develop analytical essays, & to speak in front of the class to share ideas.
Students may attend tutorials any morning from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. except Thursdays or during A lunch.
