I enjoy teaching seniors because by this point, they have experienced enough life to understand and relate to some of the themes of adversity, innovation, love, passion, and even rebellion. These same aspects of life show up in our study of British Literature, causing us to think about the world we live in, how the past relates to the present, and how the history and the culture of England shaped the literature that we read.
My goal for my students is not only to walk the stage in May, but to transfer skills learned in my class and make them applicable to their daily lives. My hope is that my students will become useful citizens who can communicate effectively, empathize, and analyze.
