"Promise me you'll always remember:  You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think"---A. A. Milne (Creator of Winnie the Pooh)

 

Welcome to English I at Millington Central High School.  I am so excited to be starting my 22nd year teaching and my seventh year here at MCHS.  I look forward to a productive and successful year in Millington Municipal Schools.  

This new y ear will be different than any previous year we have  had.  COVID 19 and Coronavirus have made this year challenging and difficult to predict.   Together, we will make the best of this school year


English I is a pivotal year for high school students.  As they transition from middle school to high school, expectations grow and students are asked to become more responsible for their learning.

In this class,we will study literature, grammar, and writing---all in preparation for the End of Course test to be taken in late April and early May.  There is a new testing service so we will be focusing on preparing for the EOC.  This test is worth 25% of their grade so it is important to begin early to give them the best chance at doing well on this test.

In short, this is priming to be an exciting time at Millington Municipal Schools.  Having met all of the students and starting to know them, I can not help but be enthusiastic about this upcoming school year.
