English teacher moonlighting as school newspaper coach. I like words. The picture below is of plants called succulents. I like that word: succulents.



for me, that teacher was Mrs. Ennis (5th grade, Canutillo, Texas).

Whether you are enrolled in American Literature (English III) or Pre-AP English II, I want to welcome you to the beginning of our year of learning together. This is my seventh year at EHS, and I can’t imagine being happier in any other job. Yes, this is a job. I just happen to love it. No, not EVERY. SINGLE. SECOND. But, I do love coming to work every day.

Teaching English is hard work. So is LEARNING ENGLISH. Try to focus while you are in my classroom, so that you make the most of every day we are here. My goal, and I hope it will be yours, is for you to do a much better job of reading, writing, speaking, and listening every day throughout this year. It will take grit and a sense of humor, plus a few supplies, to help you become a more confident communicator than you are today.

Please let me know if you would like extra tutoring time to help you understand a concept, assignment, whatever. I’m at school quite a bit, but we should probably compare our schedules if you want to be sure I will be here when it’s convenient for you.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-1176-1405745056-10This is my first blog and I’m learning as fast as I can…you know how that feels, right? So, I welcome your comments and hope that we are able to use this space as an efficient communication tool this year.
