My name is Mrs. Colligan and will be teaching English I and English IV this year. This is my fourth year here at Willis High School and my fifth year teaching. Previously, I spent 20 years in Sports Marketing and Accounting before making the career change into teaching and I hope to inspire others to always explore all learning options.
English I Overview:
In their study of various literary genres, English students will gain base knowledge of the skills necessary for success in high school English. Identification and use of proper grammatical mechanics for written communication are also emphasized. Students will read and analyze for literary merit and for historical significance. All students will study grammar and demonstrate composition effectiveness through writing.
