Joanne Rose

Hello, my name is Joanne Rose

I teach English Language Arts  (English I; English I PAP; English II)

I believe that reading fluency is key to every students' success in all subjects and throughout their lifetime careers; therefore,Reading reading is a huge part of my class. We read short stories, essays, poetry and novels inside and outside of class. We then apply all of these wonderful reading skills to our writing. The students learn to write effectively to express themselves in many different forms. They become "artists" with words! I hope by the end of the year they have achieved confidence and comfort enough to read and write when required, but also for pleasure.


My degree is in English with a minor in Psychology from Sul Ross State University in Alpine, TX. I have been teaching for 20 years Reading & English ~ 5th - 12th grade.
