Welcome back!

Throughout the year, I’ll be using the posts below mostly to list daily assignments for my two 9th Grade English classes.  Juniors and seniors in my A.P. English Language and Composition class may find information on daily assignments on their own course calendar which is accessible through the A.P. English Calendar here. There is also a link to the A.P. English calendar on Mr. Robertson’s teacher page.

I’m looking forward to meeting all of you.  Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email with any questions or concerns.
