Hoşgeldiniz! Bienvenido! Welcome!
It's nearly that time of year again! And, whether you're a student or a parent, if you're here visiting my page, it's a big one! The transition to high school is both exciting and trying- expectations are higher and the work is tougher; but the opportunities for growth are greater. You'll learn a lot about yourself this year. You'll learn a lot about the world. Some of that will be through the pages of literature. I look forward to playing witness to your journey.
So, a little bit about me: My own journey took me through Hargrave High School half my life ago. I was once that trembling freshman sitting in Mr. Perry's classroom. I graduated in 2005, a member of the last senior class to go through the building that now serves as a middle school. Since then, my story has unfolded in ways my freshman self could not have imagined- much of that thanks to the time I spent here as a student. I went to HBU on a full-tuition scholarship and picked up a B.A. in Sociology and another in Public Policy. I've had the opportunity to travel the world (Australia and Antarctica are the only continents I've yet to visit). I spent four years teaching overseas and even picked up a few languages. Now I find myself back at Hargrave, sitting on the other side of the desk, loving every minute of it.
My interests outside of school include: travel, language learning, linguistics, writing, hiking, long conversations, podcasts, and walks with my pups, Clark and Gable. 
I look forward to seeing you in class!

Class Supply Lists

Dear students and parents,
It's hard to believe that school is just a few days away. I know many of you like to do your back-to-school shopping before classes start, so I'm sending out the supply list. Please note there are two lists: one for individual supplies and another for period-specific responsibilities.

For example, if I were a Pre-AP student in third period, I would be responsible for both the Pre-AP English 1 list and Expo markers (for third period). 
Class Responsibilities:
1st period: Highlighters
3rd period: Expo markers
4th period: Post-it notes
5th period: Tissues
6th period: Highlighters
7th period: Pens/Pencils
8th period: Tissues

English 1 Students:
One composition notebook (100 sheets/200 pages, COLLEGE RULED)*
1" binder
Loose-leaf, college-ruled paper
Blue or black pens

English 1 Pre-AP Students:
One composition notebook (100 sheets/200 pages, COLLEGE RULED)*
1 or 1.5 inch binder
Loose-leaf, college-ruled paper
Blue or black pens
Post-it notes
Highlighters/colored pens for annotating 

*Please, if you've not already done so, do not buy a spiral-bound notebook as they pages tend to fall out. 
I look forward to seeing you all for the new year!
