The Man He Killed

    "Had he and I but met
                By some old ancient inn,
    We should have sat us down to wet
                Right many a nipperkin!
                "But ranged as infantry,
                And staring face to face,
    I shot at him as he at me,
                And killed him in his place.
                "I shot him dead because —
                Because he was my foe,
    Just so: my foe of course he was;
                That's clear enough; although
                "He thought he'd 'list, perhaps,
                Off-hand like — just as I —
    Was out of work — had sold his traps —
                No other reason why.
                "Yes; quaint and curious war is!
                You shoot a fellow down
    You'd treat if met where any bar is,
                Or help to half-a-crown."

  • I am Mr. Garcia and I am thrilled to begin my fourteenth 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 course 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 and links to the same documents in the Assignments section.  

    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 morning (before ALPHA Time) English 2 Honors classes, you will text the message @48k6hhf to the number 81010.  You can also send an email to @mail.remind.com.
    • If you are a student in any of my afternoon (after ALPHA Time) English 2 Honors classes, you will text the message @mrgarciasu to the number 81010.  You can also send an email to @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.
