Welcome to my AP English Language and Composition class AND to my PreAP English 2 class! I am excited to have the opportunity to teach you the art of language and the power it can carry in any form.
I have been teaching English classes for 17 years now. I have a Master's degree and a Bachelor's degree, both in Professional Writing and Technical Communication, from the University of Houston-Downtown. I truly believe that it is this course of study that refined my analysis and appreciation for the English language and how it is passed from sender to recepient, a particularly critical life-long skill to have in all careers.
I love everything about language. From the subtleties of strategic syntax to the infusion of carefully-crafted symbols, my focus is for students to see rhetoric all around them. Language has the ability to bring people together, and in a time that can sometimes seem riddled with confusion, I want my students to be aware that language is a necessary tool that conveys powerful truth.
I hope you find this class to be challenging, thoughtful, and inspirational!
