Ms. Michelle Sapp
I’m Ms. Sapp. I graduated from the University of Florida with degrees in English and History. Basically, I can discuss intelligently the different literary movements and what historical events led to them. I didn’t set out to be a teacher, but when I first stood up in front of a class, I felt I had found what I was supposed to be doing, so I stuck with it and have enjoyed just about every moment.
I started teaching in Highlands County in 2006 and moved to Marion County to teach here at Forest in 2008. I have taught all four years of high school English Language Arts classes. Still, my passion is with American Literature, so I'm very happy to be teaching English III. I am looking forward to the challenge of teaching English II again, as well.
*I don’t watch much television, but what I do watch is geared toward supernatural/sci-fi/fantasy. Supernatural, Big Bang Theory, Friends; and I am finally getting into Game of Thrones.
*I love movies and often find myself quoting movies in the middle of conversations to make or illustrate a point. For instance, there is no situation in life that can arise for which a quote from The Princess Bride is NOT apropos.
*I am an avid reader – almost aggressive about it. I can’t pass a bookstore without going in and spending money.
*I love music. I have an extensive, eclectic music collection, from Classic Rock to Classical, Hip-hop to Folk Rock. Sometimes, I play my music in class while students are working. I also play the clarinet and sing (for myself mostly, alas). I recently started learning to play the flute. It is never too late to learn something new!
*I also love photography, though I don’t get much chance to do it anymore. Hoping to change that over the next couple of years.
*I have a cat, Diego, who is exactly the predator that cats should be. He often attacks my toes in my sleep, the little devil.
