My name is Kathy Romero and I teach 9th grade English, 12th grade AOF English, and Public Speaking. Welcome to my teacher space!
I believe "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." William Butler Yeats
My philosophy for teaching is centered on this quote. In our classroom, we foster respectful relationships centered on student success in all areas of life--academic, social, and individual. Curriculum is approached through the "lighting of a fire", encouraging questioning, discussion, and making connections to self.
Lessons, assignments, documents and tutorials are provided through links in Schoology. I also encourage you to access the additional tools noted on this website--Top Teen Reads, Vocabulary Flashcards, and MLA formatting resource.
Of course, contact me with any question or issue relevant to English or Public Speaking or student needs.
