A Note from Your Teacher
I’d like to welcome you to Willis High School and tell you how excited I am for you to be in my English class. As your teacher this year I’d like to make you a few promises. I promise to do everything I can to make this your best year ever. I promise to expect only the best from you and give you my best as well. I promise you will enjoy SOMETHING we read, write, or create in class this year. I promise with hard work and dedication, you will all be successful in my class. I look forward to getting to know each and everyone of you and celebrating all of your successes this year!
Welcome to my class,
