Mrs. Christina Bryant
Welcome to English II and English II AAC. My name is Christina Bryant, and I will be your child's teacher this year. Here's a little information about me:
♥ This will be my 17th year to teach secondary ELA and my 4th year at Hightower. I have taught at Lake Dallas High School, Richland High School, Smithson Valley High School, Boerne Champion High School, and now Hightower High School. I have expeience teaching Pre-AP English I, Pre-AP English II, AP Literature and Composition, English I, and English II.
♥ I have sponsored PALS, Student Council, Cheerleading, and have been on many local and district committees.
♥ I am a proud graduated of James E. Taylor High School in Katy, Texas and a UH Cougar for life! I graduated from The University of Houston with Bachelor of Arts in Dance/Theatre and English.
♥ I have two children: Zeke, 13, and Maggie, 4.
♥ I was named the 2020-2021 Hightower High School Teacher of the Year and finalist for the FBISD Teacher of the Year
My goal in Pre-AP English is not only to prepare students for the AP Literature and Language Exams but to foster a love for learning, reading, and exploration. My greatest wish is that students will leave my class with the desire to investigate the world around them. As your teacher, I will create ways that allow you to develop a love for reading while analyzing the methods that aid in the meaning of an author's work. I hope to guide you into an intrinsic love for reading and the ability to articulate your analysis into well-crafted writings.
Tutorials are offered Tuesday and Thursday after school. If you cannot make one of these times, feel free to request a tutorial time. All requests must be made in advance.
