Sheli Ballard

Welcome to English!
I am thrilled to have you join me this year.  I have been teaching @ JICHS for more than 10 years -- can't imagine being anywhere else!  After completing a degree in print journalism @ the University of New Orleans, I attended the University of North Carolina @ Asheville to earn a degree in secondary ELA education.  I love the idea that we can not only use literature to gain an accurate understanding of the world around us, but also to relate our own inspirations, goals, & self-awareness.  I look forward to working with you -- doing lots of reading & writing!

Parents: Please sign up for reminder texts about due dates and assignments!  Email me for that information!

All class activities, assignments, & due dates are posted in class weekly.

MOST assignments can be revised!  See me to take advantage of this!
