"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think."
My name is Michele McDonough and I am a teacher of English at Belleville High School. The 2016-2017 school year is my sixth year teaching in the Belleville School District. Currently, I am teaching grade 12 honors and grade 11 English classes. My educational background include a Bachelor of Arts degree in Literature and Writing as well as a teaching certificate.
Our classes will include the study of literature through literary genres such as the short story, poetry, drama, essays, novels and speeches. Students will be expected to participate in all class activities. The work we do in class is an essential component of the course. The course will also include writing pieces in informal and formal formats.
I look forward to an exciting fun-filled year.
