Why did Magic Johnson do a 360 before slam-dunking the ball? He didn't have to. He was going to make the shot anyway. The 360 added beauty and enjoyment to the game. So does understanding language and literature. You enrich your life by understanding how to express yourself with words or how someone else is trying to express themselves. Language is a great tool - especially when used intelligently.
I grew up in northeastern Minnesota and went to Moorhead State University, Moorhead, Minnesota. I did my teaching practicum at West Fargo High School in West Fargo, North Dakota. Along with teaching 11th grade English, I had the good fortune to teach two advanced placement classes - classes which challenged those students who wanted to pursue an English degree at a university. I'm looking forward to sharing my love of words and literature with you and to challenge you to a deeper understanding of the English language!
