• Rita Pierson, My Educational Spirit Animal


    Welcome to the 220 Family.  Teaching is not just what I do, but it is what I am.  I will teach Freshman Literature and Composition and Contemporary Literature.  Homework sheets, resources, and assignments will be listed under the class title headings.  Please feel free to contact me if you need additional information.   

    Supplies Needed:  Students who are enrolled in my classes should have a notebook that is dedicated to WRITING ONLY.  Then, they should have another notebook that allows them to store classnotes, and in-class assignments.  

    Homework:  Because I am a writing teacher, students will usually have homework, and they are expected to complete readings before class, and be prepared for discussion.   

    Additional Help:  I am a teacher who believes in equity.  My goal is simple, to provide each student with an opportunity to have equal access to educational opportunities.  Therefore, if a student needs additional help, I will be available before and after school for assistance. If a student wants additional help, they must speak with me and make those arrangements. If a student misses a homework assignment, or is struggling with my class or an assignment, PARENTS, PLEASE E-MAIL ME IMMEDIATELY.  My goal is for EVERY student to experience success.
