Who is Ms. Ellington?
Ms. Ellington has lived in Henry County her entire life.  This means she knows the ins and outs of every back road and hot spot in the county.  After graduating from the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!!!) in 2007 with a BA in English, Ms. Ellington decided to pursue a career in teaching after spending a year working as a teacher's assistant in a local high school.  The 2008-2009 school year will be her first year teaching and she could not be more thrilled!  Aside from teaching, this will be Ms. Ellington's second year as a varsity basketball cheerleading coach.  In addition to coaching, other activities Ms. Ellington enjoys are traveling, gardening, reading, painting, writing, and spending time with family, friends, her boyfriend Spencer, and her two dogs Tuffy and Buddy.

What is this class all about?
English 2 (otherwise known as Sophomore English) focuses on and highlights various examples of fiction, poetry, and drama.   This course is designed to teach students how to think critically about literature and eventually put those thoughts on paper.  We will also spend much time working on and discussing persuasive writing.  Students are expected to read all assigned text, write a total of four papers per semester, participate in class discussion, and complete weekly journal assignments to be turned in every Friday.  Ms. Ellington will be available upon request for additional help and assistance.  Please click here for a preview of class readings and materials.
