Welcome to Mrs. O'Dell's English Class!
Hi Everyone! I am so excited to meet each of you this year! High School provides the opportunity for students to become advocates for themselves and gain strategies in becoming more independent and responsible. I will be your champion, supporting you on your learning journey to achieve your goals this year in English class.
You will quickly learn that I love to tell stories; I've heard from my family that some are funnier than others. However, I find them all extremely entertaining. The stories tend to be about my crazy adventures with my family. My husband is a recently retired educator and taught Social Studies at Victor High School for 33 years. He still coaches Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field. It keeps him busy and he still enjoys watching kids grow and succeed. I have two daughters. My olderst daughter, Lauren, just graduated this past May from Ithaca College and now works as a Public Relations Coordinator for Camp Good Days and Special Times. My youngest daughter, Jenna, also just graduated from Mendon High School. She now attends Lehigh University. I already miss our shopping excursions. Jenna is my shopper! Sadie is my sweet 10 year old Golden Retriever, who is eager to receive the extra attention and take on the role of "Mom's Favorite Girl." I'm sure my daughters think that she has always held that title. LOL!
This year we will be exploring many engaging pieces of literature. These works will show us exactly how words can be powerful. You will also find how compelling your own words can be and develop those skills through many different writing activities. All daily work, materials and posts will be found in MICROSOFT TEAMS (Click on this link).
