TIPS FOR SUCCESS IN CLASS: 

Students will find that preparation and positivity will yield high rewards. The habits listed below are ingredients for a successful semester:

  • You are happy to be here and ready to work.
  • You always have a pen (and other required materials).
  • You read widely and often.
  • You foster the spirit of inquiry and seek answers.
  • You make connections from the classroom to the real world.
  • You reflect thoughtfully, and are not afraid of being wrong.
  • You write widely and often.
  • You revise your writing with a critical and honest eye.
  • You demonstrate originality.
  • You work diligently and are happy to help others.

I want nothing more than for each student in my class to succeed. I am always available via email, if students or parents have any concerns. Furthermore, if a student ever needs one on one time (for any reason), he or she may request an office hours appointment via email.

Value of the Month

Psychology

Welcome to Honors Psychology!

This semester, we will work together to explore human behavior, behavior interaction and the progressive development of individuals. The content examined in this first introductory course includes major theories and orientations of psychology, psychological methodology, memory and cognition, human growth and development, personality, abnormal behavior, psychological therapies, stress/coping strategies, and mental health.

ENGLISH

Welcome to English 9, 10 and 11! 

I am looking forward to working with each of you in class this semester! Rigorous coursework in the areas of reading comprehension and analysis, critical writing, creative writing, thoughtful Socratic discussion, and language skills will all be covered throughout the semester.

 

 

THEATRE

Welcome to the Theater! 

This course is designed for the student interested in theatre arts, with an emphasis on performance. Areas covered in depth will include: vocabulary, roles in the theatre, movement, voice and dialect, character development, acting, theatre history, and the reading of
plays. Students will be involved every day in some performance-based activity. There is an emphasis on memorization, working as a group, and classroom attendance/participation. Students will be working on
projects throughout the term in groups/ teams just as they would encounter in the professional theatre world.
