I am excited to announce that in my 3rd year of teaching at La Vega High School I am teaching English I and II for the '17-'18 school year. My plan for this year is that all my students will understand that expectations will be high, because it is my goal for each student to understand his/her potential. This will be a goal-setting year. We will, of course, strive to achieve high scores on the STAAR test, but more importantly, the students' experiences in my class should help them become creative thinkers and independent learners. I hope all parents feel comfortable contacting me with their children's positive experiences as well as sharing their questions and concerns. It is going to be a positive year!
