Degrees and Certifications:
The 2016-2017 academic year is my fourth year at Highland Park Senior High School and I am thrilled to be back! Students in both my 9th and 11th grade sections will study a variety of classic and modern literature and they will learn how to better express themselves through creative and analytical writing projects.
More than anything, what I hope to accomplish this year is for students to find their own voices, to form and defend their own opinions on complex topics, and to learn to love literature.
I was born and raised in Minneapolis (go Twins!), received my B.A. from the University of Minnesota, and studied for my Master's at St. Catherine University.
Mondays and Thursdays from 2:15 to 4:00 (later, if needed)
Some Wednesdays and Fridays (please check to confirm my availability before showing up)
Please contact me via email if you have any questions or concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org
I also have a Twitter account dedicated to school. Follow me for homework reminders, interesting articles (some directly related to our current units, some not), and a quick way to contact me outside of class @Ms_Becker_SPPS
I have a classroom phone (651-744-4467), but I don't answer during class and often do not check messages until very late in the day, so email is best.
