English II Pre-AP:
Thanks for visiting my website! My name is Elizabeth Ivey, and this is my 12th year teaching English at EHS. Before coming to the high school, I taught 7th grade ELA in Elgin for four years.
I love teaching English, and teaching in Elgin has a special meaning to me, as my mother was raised here, and both my grandparents (Velma and Vallon Voight) were educators here in the 1960's. I was raised and Austin, earned degrees in English and History from UT, and completed my teaching certification at Texas State in San Marcos. I am happily married to Richard Restaino who teaches 11th grade English next door.
Here are a few bits of information about English class:
--There will be some homework, though not every night.
--You can email me assignments at firstname.lastname@example.org; be sure to check that I have recieved your email! If I do not reply, ask me in class.
--The best way to contact me is by email (email@example.com). If you call, please do so before or after school, or during my conference time. If I'm not in my room, (as I am often not during my conference) please leave me a message on voicemail, or you can leave a message with the front office.
