10th Grade English
English/Language Arts 10/Yearbook
Welcome, students and parents to the 10thgrade! My name is Mary Jones, and I will be your English teacher this year. I live in Millbrook with my husband, daughter, son, cat, and three dogs. I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree and Master's of Education from Faulkner University where I studied English Language Arts/Secondary Education and Curriculum and Instruction. This is my ninth year as a professional educator, and I look forward to growing and getting to know each and every one of you.
Parents, the ninth grade is a transitional period for students. We will be working with the students to learn their objectives and to prepare them for more freedom in high school. The work will be harder and students will have to study at home more, even if they did not have to do this in previous years. I promise to do my best to teach students what they need to know to be successful if they will come to school, be responsible for their materials and behavior, and do what I ask them to do. I will not, however, tolerate a student being a distraction to the rest of the class and preventing the rest of the class from accomplishing our goals. Distractions will be dealt with quickly.
If at any time you need to contact me, you may email me ator call the school at (334)-541-3662 to schedule a conference or a callback. I do welcome the opportunity to discuss any questions, problems, or issues that you may have.
