Greetings English 12 visitor,
When I graduated high school I was at the top of my class and so happy to enter Georgetown University only to be placed in Remedial English and Math classes. When it came time for a career that would help others I decided that I did not want any of my students to struggle as I did my freshmen year of college.
That being said, I plan on pushing seniors in my class. They will write many essays of various types at a much faster rate than they may be used to in the beginning. It is my hope that even if students moan and complain about all the work that they will become improved writers this year. That would in turn make their freshmen year of college (no matter when they enroll in college) much easier.
