Welcome to English I and English I Honors

  • Assignments for March 30 - May 1, 2020 - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. 

    Marion County Public Schools may record online classroom sessions utilizing third-party platforms (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.).  These recordings will only be used for educational purposes and may be shared on other learning platforms.  If you do not want your child’s image or identifying information recorded, utilize your device/platform controls to stop the camera feed from your device.


    Hello, all! I hope you've been well. Now that we are getting into virtual learning starting Wednesday, April 1st, a few issues I need to address.  I have received numerous emails and messages already, and much of it is already addressed here if you read:

    1. Assignments will be posted and submitted on Google Classroom.  This should not be a problelm as we have been using that platform all year.  However, if you have any difficulty getting onto Google Classroom, please email me ASAP so that you can have the assignments delieved to you via email. 


    Google Classroom Codes:

    1st period - 6w4ojvd

    2nd period - hbdzzhm

    3rd period - bgawkjj

    4th period - cdy5mmk

    5th period - gkr6lt7

    6th period - htjb55b 

    2. If you have any questions, you can email me at christina.otero@marion.k12.fl.us. You can also post directly to Google Classroom. Finally, I will be available on a work phone Monday through Friday, 10 am to 11 am and 1 pm to 2 pm. My work number is 352-405-1197. You will be prompted to say your name so that I know who it is calling.

    3. Though we are going virtual, I am still responsible for taking attendance. I will be marking everyone "present" by 10 am daily.  HOWEVER, if you do not keep up with the work for the week, I am required to contact WPHS administration to do a follow up with your family.  You may then be marked as "absent" if administration decides you have no been engaging in our online learning community.  

    Stay healthy!

    Ms. O


    I am Ms. Otero, and I'm happy to be your English I/honors teacher this year!  We will be working toward becoming better readers, writers, and speakers of English.  Students in this course will be working toward mastery of the Florida State Standards for English Language Arts and will be responsible for taking the 9th grade FSA in writing and reading.  I will use this website to update all important documents used in class, due dates, and announcements. Please check it frequently, especially when absent from school. You can learn more about me in the Meet the Teacher Page.
