Statement of Purpose
Inside of my English classroom, students will learn to engage their creative minds in literature
and then form essays and opinions based on the literature. We will work our hardest to learn something new every day, as a team. We will respect the teacher and rest in the fact that she is doing her absolute best to teach today what will matter tomorrow.
Rule 1: Be on time, on task, and prepared EVERY day.
Rule 2: Keep ALL electronics stowed away in pouches during instructional/work periods.

Rule 5: Be OPEN and HONEST!
