Welcom to English II!
I am Mrs. Wingate and I will be your English II or Honors English II teacher for the 2020-2021 school year! I am so happy to see and meet you all on Monday. I am excited to share what will most definitely be the most interesting school year ever with you all. As a graduate of Vanguard High School (class of 2008), I can tell you that you truly are attending the BEST School in the Land! Don't let any of your friends from any other school tell you any different! :)
This year will certainly be different from any other school year. We will have unique challenges and obstacles to overcome. But we will get through everything together. That being said, I have some information below for you and your parents.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
ALL of MY CLASSES will be using Microsoft Teams. I teach three sections of traditional brick and mortar classes and three sections of online classes. In an effort to make life easier on everyone, all classes will utilize Microsoft Teams. Please, do not stress about this. We will work through it together.
This year Vanguard will opperate on an alternating BLOCK SCHEDULE. This means that you will have three classes each day. There will be Red Days (A DAYS) - Periods 1, 3, and 5. And there will be Blue Days (B Days) - Periods 2, 4, and 6. The schedule is listed below.
