My name is Ms. Venegas and I'm looking forward to teaching English 9. This will be my fourth year teaching English and I am so excited to join the Elsinore High School family this year!
I previously completed my BA at UC Riverside and my MA in Secondary Education at Loyola Marymount University. Outside of teaching, I have a passion for traveling. I've been to over 30 countries and I love to connect with the places I visit by reading their literature. This year, the literary works we will study will also take us around the world and allow us to encounter a diversity of perspectives and experiences. I previously completed a certification in publishing through Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and I am happy to bring my experiences working in book publishing into our classroom as we study the writing process.
I am here to support each of you and to help you on your road to success. Communication is incredibly important. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any point during the school year: email@example.com
Students if you need to speak with me, I will typically be in my classroom from 7am-2:30pm. I'm also available by appointment, just let me know when you'd like to meet!
Please be aware that there is free, school-wide tutoring in Room 226 from 2:30-3:30pm Monday-Thursday. If you need access to computers or printers after school, our library is open everyday from 2:30-4pm.
Keeping up with class assignments and deadlines will be crucial to student success. Students and parents please see our class page for a copy of the course syllabus. Also be sure to regularly access our online gradebook via Infinite Campus.
I look forward to a wonderful year with all of you!
