It is well-known that spoken and written words often define a character. Because people base their impressions of us on our fluency in both of these areas, our students are exposed to a variety of opportunities to express themselves in speaking and writing. Equally significant is teaching our students the means by which to comprehend a variety of genres in reading and to apply the knowledge they have acquired from each. From Shakespeare to classics of the 19th Century, contemporary works to educational websites, each course is tailored and delivered to match the needs of the class, whether it be in the locally developed, applied, or academic pathway. Instructed by teachers who are passionate about their subject area, students learn the skills and gain the confidence to excel in their post-secondary choices. Regardless of the paths our students plan to take, the teachers in our English Department strive to prepare them for whatever might lie ahead.
