Christmas Break

The lost days due to the hurricane really threw us off kilter this semester, but we made it through and are ready for a much needed break.

Next semester will be easier and more difficult at the same time: We are going to work a lot on how to write well; we'll be studying mythology and The Odyssey, poetry (and creating a poetry collection), and Romeo and Juliet. We'll continue doing vocabulary. Many students have hurt their average by never studying their vocabulary.

As the semester progresses, I spend more time working on planning and grading than I do on updating my site, as some of you may have noticed. One of my New Year's resolutions is to keep the site as up-to-date as possible.

Have a wonderful Christmas, Hanakkuh, Kwanzaa, and winter break.
