Room 2629 -- Mr. Hillin
English I Pre-AP
I am very excited to be teaching all of you! I hope you all have had an exciting, fun summer and that you are ready to work. This class will cover a number of different skill sets. We will practice writing, learn new vocabulary, increase our competency in grammar, and read a number of short stories originating from various cultures around the world. Along with reading several short stories and poems, the major works for students to look forward to reading are:
Night by Elie Wiesel
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
Time Machine and War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells
Lord of the Flies by William Golding
A little about your teacher:
Before I began teaching, I worked in the private sector for over fifteen years. My experiences before my current occupation taught me the fundamentals of good communication. I hope to pass some of these skills along to all of my students.
I received my high school education in Buna, Texas and B.A in English with a focus on writing from Lamar University. During my time at Lamar University, I worked with Pulse magazine, earning numerous awards for both poetry and essays. Also, I regularly attend writing and poetry workshops, from annual CCCC conference to poetry workshops in Westchester, PA.
