Welcome to ELA 2 Honors, AP Literature/Composition for the 2018-2019 school year! 
  •  If you are enrolled in ELA 2 Honors & did not get the summer assignment, please see me immediately to obtain it. 
  •  If you are enrolled in AP Lit/Comp for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year, please complete the summer reading assignment (open file below please). 
  • A summer note for upcoming AP Lit/Comp students - For anyone unsure of which of Foster's two novels to purchase since they both begin with "How to Read Like ...", you need to read the one titled How to Read Literature Like a Professor. Enjoy the summer and some pleasurable reading. I look forward to seeing you in the fall.
  • An incredible thank you to my AP Lit/Comp students of 2017-2018 -  an 87%  pass rate on the exam with 47% 4's & 5's! You truly are the epitome of HAWK STRONG as graduated seniors!
  • Another incredible thank you to my sophomores of 2017-2018 - you were an absolute joy to teach. You are emulating the future of our school as HAWK STRONG! I hope that you will  bless me by taking my AP Lit course in two years.
