|Hello and welcome to my website!
My name is Patrick Brown and I am proud to say I am a ninth grade English Teacher here at Belleville High School! My interest in literature is as diverse as my passion is genuine. As an educator and facilitator in English Lit., I have a keen and steadfast interest in encouraging my students toward passions of their own and strive to show them, through example, that the desire to educate oneself can be fun and exciting and, most importantly, a lifelong experience.
As a teacher, I am keenly interested in becoming a facilitator to young students. As they learn to navigate their way through a life brimming with learning experiences, I hope to facilitate the adventure by instilling an unending curiosity in literature so they may apply it to the world they come to discover. I feel strongly in the commitment to help stir this compassion by inspiring them to read and write at a rigorous academic level. Instilling this discipline will, I believe, spark a desire to think critically making English Literature a truly enriching experience.
Students!! We're going to be working on Greek 'Creation Myth' posters and timelines! The posters with the most votes will be featured here on my website! Good Luck!
