Greetings Parents and Scholars!
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all to my Pre-AP English II course for the 2019-2020 school year! I am proud to be joining such a dynamic and highly esteemed team of professionals, students, and families here at DHS Collegiate Academy. This year, I aim to bring the "LIT" back into literature by fostering a culture of resilient and innovative critical thinkers with high ethical standards. In my classroom, you can expect to see collaboration, rigorous yet riveting lessons, and socially relevant materials that are thought provoking and culturally diverse. Students, the course work this year will require you to expand your thinking and challenge your work ethic and ability to retain information. We will be fine tuning your reading, writing, organization, and leadership skills to ensure a smooth transition into college next year and beyond! My expectations for you are extremely HIGH but trust that you will be heard, safe, and SUCCESSFUL this year!!!
