Welcome to my English class! This is my fifth year teaching and my third year at Destrehan High School. I am looking forward to teaching your student the skills they need to do well on the English II LEAP 2025, the Advanced Placement Language and Composition exam, or the Advanced Placement Literature and Composition exam. I service Academically Gifted students at Destrehan High School. I teach Gifted English II, Gifted AP Language and Composition, and Gifted AP Literature and Composition.
Although this will be a unique year, with many obstacles to overcome, I have not eased my expectations of my students. Therefore, in order to succeed in my class, it is important to show up to class, either physically or virtually, every day in order to participate and learn the covered material. I understand that glitches happen; therefore, all lessons will be recorded and posted on Google Classroom. That being said, I hope to see all students every day, either in person or on the computer. Together, we can make this a successful year!
For the summer reading, here are the books:
-Gifted English II freshmen - The Odyssey
-Gifted English II sophomores - Lord of the Flies
-Gifted AP Language and Composition - Catch-22 and Slaughterhouse-Five
-Gifted AP Literature and Composition - The Joy Luck Club
