WELCOME TO MR. GARCIA'S ENGLISH 2 HONORS
POEM OF THE WEEK
Mind in its purest play is like some bat
That beats about in caverns all alone,
Contriving by a kind of senseless wit
Not to conclude against a wall of stone.
It has no need to falter or explore;
Darkly it knows what obstacles are there,
And so may weave and flitter, dip and soar
In perfect courses through the blackest air.
And has this simile a like perfection?
The mind is like a bat. Precisely. Save
That in the very happiest of intellection
A graceful error may correct the cave.
– Richard Wilbur (November 12-16)
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 email@example.com.
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.
