English II Honors

Welcome

Hello!  I am so excited to work with my students and their parents in English II Honors this year.  Each day, I will post homework on my Google calendar (there will be a link on this website), as well as any documents that will be helpful to my students and parents.

Bio

I teach English II, English II Honors, and Teacher Cadet.  I have a Bachelors of Arts degree in English from Clemson University and a Masters in Education from Converse College, and I am also a National Board Certified teacher, as well as Gifted and Talented certified.  This is my 16th year in education, and I am passionate about teaching and working with young people.  Prior to GMC, I taught at my Alma Mater, Blue Ridge High.

Retake Opportunities

I offer retake opportunities for students scoring a 79 or below on major assessments.  Students must attend Office Hours to participate in a retake.  Office Hours are on Wednesdays from 3:05 until 3:45, and to better serve my students, I do ask that students let me know in advance if they will be attending Office Hours.  GMC retakes are offered on Fridays in room B12.
