Fresh Beginnings!

A new semester has begun! This semester will be full of new ideas and projects. By following along on this website students and parents alike can see what is happening in class, as well as details for assignments. Parents please follow by email (see icon to the right) so you can be up to date with classroom rules and happenings.

I plan to leave up current assignments for the rest of the week so students can see what an assignment looks like. This will also give all viewers a chance at playing with the website so all become comfortable. If there are any questions please email me!

I have attached the course rules and expectations. All this will be covered with the students today and tomorrow. Take a look!
I am very excited about this semester and all the fun things that are in store. I adore teaching and see it as an opportunity to inspire and empower. As a teacher, I want my students to excel, not only up the educational ladder but also in life. My educational philosophy is built around engaging learners with research-based Instructional Strategies. Cooperative learning and setting personal objectives are ways I plan to help further my student's education experience. I feel that each teacher must a create a personalise teaching experience for every student to help them take ownership of their education. With all that said, I am looking forward to working with all the students in my courses this semester.

If you would like to see the first post in August follow the link, there you will find reasons for begining a class website and ideas for blogging in English 11. One will also find more information about me!
