Welcome to English I and
PAP/IB English I at Lowery Freshman Center
This is my 23rd year of teaching. I have taught 9th graders for 10 years. Additionally, I have taught students in grades 5th-10th grade as well as college courses for students preparing to be teachers during my career.
Lowery is a wonderful place to be with all of our students finally coming together from all over Allen to become Eagles! We do a lot of Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking in our English I classroom. Students say that it is a lot of work, but that the time flies by because we love our time together, and they care about the work they are doing.
We will read a wide array of genres and do a wide variety of writing, including narrative and expository writing, to meet our performance standard requirements for English I. I look forward to growing with you both as a reader and a writer. I consider myself privileged to work with the Lowery 9th graders!
