Willey, Rachel » Welcome!


Welcome back to school! I am an English teacher, the Akins Cheer Coach, and the Green Tech Academy Coordinator. I am so looking forward to another amazing Akins year! 
English 4- We will be focusing on in depth reading of novels from the college reading list as well as short stories and nonfiction pieces , breaking down the text for author's purpose, figurative language, theme, tone, and also working on making inferences based on what we read. We will be practicing analytical writing and reading in preparation for college writing and college essays. All of these skills are things you will need to prepare for COLLEGE! In English 4 College Readiness is our NUMBER 1 PRIORITY!
