Mrs. Humphries

Welcome to English 9!

As a passionate lover of literature and your teacher-librarian, I am thrilled to also be your English teacher.  It is my goal that our classroom will look much like a “book club” of sorts, with members who share, discuss, debate, defend and possibly change their perceptions as they interact with others. 

Poetry, short stories, novels, non-fiction and media will be explored in thematic units throughout the year.  Evaluation will be ongoing throughout each term in a variety of ways to meet the varying needs of the learners.  A lot of work will be assessed without numbers or percentages, using a scale of “Beginning, Developing, Skilled or Exemplary”, before a student receives a number mark.  As well, students, who consistently demonstrate exemplary work will be challenged. 

My goal is to ensure that every student leaves this class a better writer, reader and communicator. My hope is that I will foster a lifetime love of reading in all of my students! ☺

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  I would appreciate receiving the email addresses of the parents/guardians of my students.  If you have not already done so, please send me an email at lorisse_humphries@sd33.bc.ca.  I can also be reached by phone at the school at 604-795-5781.
