I've been teaching English at Granada since 2008. I primarily teach IB Language & Literature and AP Literature & Composition. I create a Google Classroom for each new course I teach and I provide my students with the enrollment code on the syllabus, which is distrubuted at the beginning of the term. I love helping my students get excited about literary analysis. Nothing beats the feeling when students realize those skills apply to all texts and media they encounter outside of the classroom!
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded.” --Ralph Waldo Emerson
