I teach English II. What led/influenced me to teaching English II were my Degrees in Writing: Journalism and Communications: Political Rhetoric. I've been teaching at Lake Region for 6 years. The best thing about teaching at Lake Region are the students' demographics: they are pretty close to where I went to high school in rural Pennsylvania. The learning environment in my class is serious, but relaxed. The most important thing students will learn after taking my class is that no matter what life throws at you, don't lose your sense of humor.
