Welcome students and parents to my Cordova High School webpage!

    I'm very excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year with you and get to meet with all of you in person.  it's been a crazy couple of years, hasn't it?  Well, I'm hoping things will be less burdensome this year, and I want to do everything I can to help you feel comfortable so that you can successfully navigate my course(s).

    A Little About Me

    I have been teaching High School English for 10 years, and this year will mark my third year with Cordova High School.  My passion for teaching, literature, and composition runs so deep that I went to graduate school twice to earn master's degrees in English, Rhetoric and Composition, and in Educational Anthropology. Teaching English language literature and composition is truly my passion, but when I'm not buried nose-deep in a book, magazine, or newspaper . . . or student writing, you will usually find me trying my hand at writing my own fiction, playing with my dog, Redford, and travelling with my wife to wherever we can escape to.  

    On top of teaching and literature and travel, I love languages generally, and I speak, adequately, three of them: Polish, Spanish, and English.  Polish, long ago, was once my first, dominant language.  Now, it is English.  But, I still communicate with my family in Polish.  Spanish I learned through middle school, high school, and then college, and I still use it pretty frequently, which I'm grateful to be able to do.  So, if you speak either of these languages, Polish or Spanish, please stop on by for a chat!  I could use the practice!
