In my first year as a new teacher, I thought I would end up crushed under the mountain of homework, class work, quizzes, exams, essays, lesson plans and books. And there were plenty of times that I wished I could crawl under that pile of paper to catch up on sleep. No one had shared with me just how much work I would face outside of the classroom in preparation to return to teach each class each day.
As a high school English teacher, I teach five classes with 34 students in each class. So that’s 170 vocabulary quizzes to grade, 170 tests to grade, 170 sets of homework to grade, 170 essays to read, edit and grade, and so on. It can really add up. At any one point, you could be exploring Chinua Achebe’s “Things Fall Apart” with your freshmen, Shakespeare’s “Othello” with your sophomores and Albert Camus’ “The Stranger” with your seniors.
I hope you are as excited as I am to begin a brand new school year. I am thrilled to be your teacher and look forward to a fun and productive school year. Be ready for many new and exciting challenges, so bring your “A”- game.
In my classrooms I encourage risk-taking thinking, respect, trust, and a sense of ownership amongst students. Only through these practices can we foster a tight-knit community. This will ensure a safe learning environment for all.

It’s come to this: six Carson City, Nevada, middle school students were arrested in January for posting a Facebook invitation for students to take part in “Attack a Teacher Day” at two local middle schools. Before a parent alerted authorities, 18 students had already signed up to join in the mass assault.
The same day that the six girls were arrested in Nevada, 17-year-old student Robert Butler walked into Millard South High School in Omaha, Nebraska, and shot his principal and assistant principal. Butler later committed suicide, and the assistant principal, Vicki Kaspar, died of her wounds.
