Mission


My goal is to teach students to read thoughtfully and perceptively, to listen carefully, to analyze critically, and to express their ideas logically, clearly, and precisely. Through the study of literature in English, students gain insight into experience, thinking, and feelings different from their own, and they come to perceive the likeness among people as well as differences determined by such circumstances as gender, race, and class. These insights foster cooperation and community, both in the classroom and in the larger world.
