     Topics and Instructions


    I have been at Weber Institute since it opened in 2000. If you are in my English class, then you can expect to READ, READ, READ, and WRITE, WRITE, WRITE. You'll be reading short stories, essays, speeches, articles, and novels, and you'll be writing essays, research papers, business letters, and even poetry. Fear not -- just forge ahead and you will succeed.


    "Success isn't always about greatness. It's about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come."
