Welcome to the profile page of Ms. Jaclyn Morgan, English Language Arts teacher at West Orange High School.
My teaching career began in the West Orange school district in 2000 where I spent my first 13 years teaching Grade 8 English at Roosevelt Middle School before transferring to West Orange High School in 2013.
My love for reading and writing was recognized during my Freshman year at college when a class assignment included reading a series of short stories by Henrik Ibsen. It was at this time I realized English Education was the career I wished to pursue.
I believe reading comprehension and written expression are two extremely important life skills which will be utilized well beyond an individual's school years. English Language Arts allows students the opportunity to improve and build upon these skills which will add insight and understanding to others around them and the world in which they live.
The courses I will be teaching for the 2015-2016 school year include English 9, Freshman Seminar, Mythology and Contemporary World Literature.
