Welcome, Class of 2021!
The writer Joan Didion said that "we tell ourselves stories in order to live." English IV and AP Literature & Composition are both classes in which we will read, closely analyze, write about, and discuss some of those stories and what they might tell us about what it means to be human.
I'm so excited to get to know you all and for us to get to a deeper understanding of what it means to live in community.
I am committed to making my (physical and virtual) class a SAFE SPACE for all students. If you have any questions or concerns, please know you can always speak with me (privately, if you wish) about how to make the class environment more welcoming and safe for you and your classmates. We WILL be tackling issues of bias and race in my class which can sometimes be uncomfortable. However, if we are to live and learn in community, it is important for us to acknowledge and accept each other as whole individuals, along with all of the different cultures we belong to. It also means being aware of different stories and experiences that may not be present in our classroom, but are present in our society.
