English 11~The Coronado Roar~The Coronado Prowl~Journalism I/Publications I
This is my 23rd year teaching, and I am an original Cougar; I have been at Coronado since it opened in 2001. I feel very lucky to do what I do even if I do have a REALLY hectic schedule.
I am fortunate to teach English 11 which is my passion. This class combines both reading and writing to help nurture a balance in my students. With the inception of Common Core, students will find themselves reading more informational text and really delving into analyzing the craft of writing while continuing to hone their own writing skills.
I am also responsible for teaching students the beginning elements of newspaper and yearbook in my Journalism/Publications I class. From here, successful students may choose to become a staff member on either The Coronado Roar or The Coronado Prowl depending on their strengths.
The Coronado Roar, the school newspaper, was selected this past May by the Las Vegas Review- Journal as the NUMBER ONE paper in the Clark County School District. I was recognized as Journalism Adviser of the Year by CLASS! magazine in 2005. The staff of The Roar produces 5 papers a year for a student body of over 3100. If you are interested in advertising, please use the link on the newspaper page or use the contact information below to get in touch.
The Coronado Prowl, the school yearbook, is a leather-bound, full color book of more than 300 pages. It covers student activities, all sports and clubs, and the student body (for those who elect to get their photos taken). It is literally a time capsule of a student's year here at CHS. The opening price of the book is $75, but it will go to $85 in Feb. and then to $100 once it arrives at the school in May. To purchase a senior ad in this year's book or for ordering information, please use the link on the yearbook page or call 799-6800 ext. 4076.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach me at 799-6800 ext. 4076 or email me at email@example.com. I respond much more quickly to emails than phone calls.
Here's to a great year.
