My class is very structured, and our weekly schedule usually follows this pattern:
Monday - Weekly Real Life Connection article
Tuesday - Begin reading the week's text; Begin learning a new vocabulary list
Wednesday - Complete this week's texts
Thursday - Essay composition or other writing skill / Text-to-Text Comparisons
Friday - Weekly Quiz (Will cover the week's vocabulary, the week's text(s), and a cold read with PARCC assessment-styled questions)
Students are required to have a binder with five dividers labeled "Bellwork," "Reading," "Writing," "Vocabulary," and "State Test."
Compensatory Reading II, English II, English IV
I am proud to say that I graduated from Olive Branch High School in 2005, and I could not be more thrilled to be back where I am happiest. I am also a Secondary Education graduate from the University of Mississippi, and I am currently a student at the University of Memphis where I am taking classes for my MA in Literature.
This is my eighth year of teaching. I have always been at Olive Branch High School, and I have taught 9th Grade English, 10th Grade Reading, and 10th Grade English.
