It's an honor to be working with the fantastic students at this school, as well as the wonderfully supportive staff.

  • American Literature is a survey of the literature and history that has developed since the establishment of the country. We will look at everything from poems to songs, short stories to novels, and everything inbetween. We will write, read, analyze, and discover how America has changed over the course of its history. As an American Literature team of teachers, we have extremely high expectations for our students, and we believe that our students can meet these expectations with hard work and perseverence!
