Get Off

    It's all that I can think of
    as I drag my feet, searching 
    Like a Diogenes, 
    The adjectives of the decade
    and of your alluring intricacies, 
    Yes I see your green-screen mentality 
    And I can feel the sting of its consequence, 
    And I know I shouldn't but it's too much to ignore,
    An emotion I deplore 
    Every time I look at you, I just want to do it,
    I can clench my fist right through it 
    But I just want to get off,
    This direction we've been heading
    never realizing we are on a runaway machine, 
    The momentum that does turn us
    one step further on our ladder, 
    one more turn toward the east 
    I realize your green-screen mentality 
    And I know it is shared by many more,
    And I know it is quite impossible 
    But I am damned to find a way to 
    Revolve the other way
    Every time I scrutinize I just say "screw it", 
    We're on a ride down a blind conduit and I just want to get off

  • I am Mr. Garcia and I am thrilled to begin my thirteenth year teaching at West Port High!

    In this website, you will be able to find everything and anything needed to be successful in English 2 Honors.  In the Course Information link to the right, you will be able to find the information pertaining to the courses I teach (syllabus).  In the Assignments section, you will find PDFs and PowerPoint Presentations of the work done in class or work you are expected to finish at home.  In the calendar, you will find the daily agenda of what is done in class by day.  

    I will also be using a secure texting system called Remind.  Although this system will allow me to communicate with parents and students, no personal phone numbers will have to be exchanged.  All you or your parents have to do to join is follow the simple instructions below:

    • If you are a student in any of my English 2 Honors classes, you will text the message @mrgarciasu to the number 81010.  You can also send an email to mrgarciasu@mail.remind.com.


    Learning never ceases


  • Gradebook Discrepancy

    Dear parents and students, whenever you go on the portal to check grades and find that the gradebook indicates a missing assignment, don't be concerned.  When an assignment is created but a grade not put immediately, the gradebook marks it as missing.  You should only be concerned if the missing assignment is accompanied by a score of 0.  If there's a 0, you should come see me immediately during PH.
