Thank you for visiting my profile page!
I am new to the West Orange school district, and very excited to be a part of this learning community, which has been so welcoming. I am teaching college preparatory courses for 10th grade English, as well as 11th grade Survey of American Literature. I love the interpretative possibilities when interacting with various texts, and strive to have students realize that their lives, experiences, and thoughts matter and have value when encountering new ideas. I believe that literature can come alive when compared and contrasted with personal lives, society, and varying literary forms and media.
I will be using Google Classroom for posting homework, sharing class materials, and uploading necessary documents for each of my classes. The site will be accessible through the students' @westorangeschools.org accounts.
