Mr. Sandy Faiella
I teach English 9, English 12 and AP English Literature (Advanced Placement). In addition, I am the head of the English Department. My 9th grade students are already learning the reading and writing skills that that will guide them through the rest of their high school career and prepare them for their ELA Regents exam while my 12 grade students are readying themselves for a post secondary life by learning necessary academic and life skills . In February we will be highlighting Black History Month by studying Kamala Harris’s acceptance speech for winning the position of Vice President of the United States and focusing on what she had to overcome in society to receive this title. My AP English students are finishing their second novel of this school year and will soon begin our analysis of shorter works and poetry.
