English I

This semester we will begin the semester with Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck.  We will also be reading some nonfiction articles about the Great Depression since this novel is set during that time period. We will then complete units on Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, The Odyssey by Homer which is an epic adventure, and end the semester with William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.  Of course, we will be covering literary elements, poetry, as well as grammar as we work our way through these awesome pieces of literature.  I am looking forward to an awesome semester.

 

We will also write a literary criticism research paper this semester.  A calendar will be provided with all due dates as we begin the writing process.

Mrs. Jennie Wright

     I am extremely excited to begin this year at Parkway High School.  Although this is my first year at PHS, I have been teaching 8th grade ELA at Elm Grove Middle School for the past 15 years.  Since I am an avid reader, I enjoy encouraging my students to read for pleasure.  Reading builds vocabulary, expands our knowledge base, and takes us on adventures to awesome places.  

     The university where I obtained my degree is LSUS.  I began college later in life when I had only one child left at home.  After graduation, I began teaching at Elm Grove Middle School.  

     I am the mother of four wonderful children.  My oldest son Danny lives in Montgomery, Alabama with this wife Angie.  My daughter Melissa Gay lives here in SOBO with her husband Revis and four of my totally awesome grandsons.  Melissa and I actually graduated from LSUS together which is one of the high points of my life.  Nathan graduated from PHS last year and is starting at Centenary College this year.  Garrison is beginning his first year at PHS this year.  Sutton is in the 3rd grade, and Evan is in Kindergarten.  I think Melissa and Revis definitely have their hands full with all of those boys!  My son Wesley lives in Jackson, Mississippi with his wife Allison.  Finally, my youngest daughter Jennifer Gholson lives in Austin, Texas with her husband Seth and their two boys.  Brody is going to be in the 4th grade, and Hatcher is starting Kindergarten this year.  

     I attend South Bossier Baptist Church and work with the preschool kids along with my daughter Melissa.  In my spare time I love to read or hang out with my grandsons. Of all the things I have done in my life, being a grandmother to these six awesome boys is definitely ranked at the top.  I am truly blessed!
