I am a Literacy Specialist and English Teacher at Wossman High School. I believe that ALL children can learn given the tools for success and that begins with READING. I employ you to join me in providing strategies that will ensure "literacy for all" so that ALL students will be successful in reaching their predestined purpose!

Welcome to the class you’ve been getting ready for. Your “pre” AP classes have undoubtedly prepared you well for AP English III, a hard-work class with plenty of personal challenges and rewards. The Advanced Placement English Language and Composition course, nationwide, is intended to provide a college-level study of language, rhetoric, and expository writing for high school students who are interested in studying and writing various kinds of analytic or persuasive essays on nonliterary topics. Here at Wossman we will focus, additionally, on American literature as we prepare you also for the AP Literature class and exam your senior year. So, although the actual AP Language exam focuses on nonfiction, we’ll get started in the summer with doing some stimulating reading from both genres.
