Welcome back!

Throughout the year, I’ll be using the posts below to list daily assignments for my AP English classes.  If you’re absent, you can check the space below for brief descriptions of in-class activities and homework assignments. I’ll also include links to any handouts. Later in the year, if you’re looking for older assignments or handouts, it may be easier to find them on the course calendar here. This calendar is shared by Mr. Estes and his classes as he and I will be giving the same assignments over the course of the year.

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