Meet Ms. Loftus!
Hello! I feel very blessed to be teaching English 3 and English 3 Honors at West Port this year! I came to West Port in January 2015 and taught Liberal Arts Math for the rest of the year. For the past two years, I have taught English 3 and English 3 Honors and am very excited to be teaching the same thing this year! I have a B.A. in English and a B.S. in journalism from the University of Florida. Go Gators! After graduating from UF, before I started at West Port, I worked as a general assignment newspaper reporter.
Every student deserves an excellent education, and my goal is to help give every student that education. In English 3 and English 3 Honors, we will develop argumentative and informative writing skills; students will also become stronger readers in these classes. Both classes are challenging and will push students beyond their comfort zones. To succeed in these classes, students will need to work hard in school and at home every single day and will need to be in attendance every day as well. The classes will be hard and do involve a lot of work, but that just means there is more room for a higher reward!
