  1. I really want to take this English class. Sadly, I had only one marvelous English teacher in my Sophomore year of High School. Ms. Brewer taught me almost everything I know about literature. I’ve had courses in college less challenging and engaging than that section of honors English. We read two books a week and wrote a paper every day. I hated most of the class, but am so grateful for it now. The world needs more badass high school teachers like you and Brewer. I salute you.

    • Thank you for stopping by and the salute. I am impressed with Ms. Brewer and the reading of two books each week and writing every day. How long were your class periods? I would like to hear any advice you may have for me to prepare the kids for college. Everyone seems to have different ideas, and college is a little different than when I attended.
