Welcome to ESS English 9
I have high expectations of the students and myself. I take my job seriously, and I hope that all of my students treat their education the same way. I like to work in a positive environment and as a team where we all show respect for one another. I really look forward to getting to know each and every one of you. I think this year will be one of great success and accomplishments.

I encourage open communication between the students, parents, teachers, and administration to develop a positive learning environment. Therefore, if you have any questions, concerns or thoughts please do not hesitate to contact me.
