Helena Hacshenburger-Dunn - ELA Teacher (10th - 12th)

In striving to guide students towards their personal best in Advanced Placement (AP) English classes, the overarching goals for my scholars encompass both academic achievement and the creation of an inclusive and safe learning environment. The primary objective is to empower students with the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in AP exams, potentially allowing them to test out of introductory college writing courses. This academic success is not pursued in isolation but within a framework that recognizes and celebrates the diversity of backgrounds and perspectives within the classroom. Fostering inclusivity ensures that every student feels valued and supported, creating a safe space for intellectual exploration. Through dedicated guidance and a supportive educational framework, the goal is to nurture self-motivated, intellectually curious individuals who are well-prepared to thrive in the challenges and opportunities that higher education presents, all within an inclusive and safe learning environment.
