Welcome to our class web site for English 11, and English 9.  For all my students, and their parents, I hope you find the web site useful in providing support information, links, and more. If you would like to reach me, please send me an email at Lynn.Okey@leusd.k12.ca.us. I tutor every day during lunch and after school, so all are invited in to get help on work, come in to talk with friends, or just sit and take a break. 
 
I have been teaching at EHS since 2003, and love working with the other great teachers, staff, and administrators who come to work every day like I do, to help kids. 
 
Prior to working as a teacher, I was a staff writer for the Wisconsin state capitol, a few political candidates, and a director/copy writer for a Milwaukee advertising firm.  When I moved to California, I worked for the California Associations Institute, and started a small construction business for local builders in north county. How did I end up in education?  Well, I started volunteering as a court-appointed special advocate for the North County Juvenile Courts in the early 2000's, and was so rewarded with the work I was doing with children that I didn't want to do anything other than work with teens, and help them get ready for the world.

Learn through Study: WORD ROOTS

This semester you will be studying Greek and Latin Word Roots. I have 2 sources (listed as a link on my personal page) that you may use to begin study.  In class, you will be taught how to use 3X5 cards to learn these roots which form the basis of so many of our words in English. We will have quizzes and tests to check your learning progress, so carry around your flash cards so you can study anytime.
