Welcome to English, Panthers!
My name is Tanner Smith, and this is my fourth year teaching English at Petal High School. I currently teach English I and World Literature/English II. I earned a B.S. in Secondary Education from Mississippi State University (Hail State!). I can't wait to be your teacher for the 2023-2024 school year!
Students and parents, please email me at email@example.com with any questions or concerns you may have about my course.
Course Goals: In my classroom, students should expect to work diligently, accept constructive criticism, engage collaboratively, and respect the ideas and opinions of others on a daily basis.
- Extend the knowledge acquired in earlier grades & expect a deeper application of skills.
- Proficiency with 9-10th grade level text complexity.
- Texts will require writing over both extended time frames and shorter time frames for a range of tasks, purposes, and audiences.
