Ms. Jennifer Ramsell « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Hello, and welcome to my class!  I am excited to begin this year with you.  I am a native of New Hampshire and teaching is my second career.  While I have recently taught middle school, high school and college courses, I spent 13 years in marketing as a public relations director.  It was an exciting career that offered me a variety of great experiences--many of which I will share with you in class.  

Here on my Teacher Connection page you will find information about the three courses I teach: English I Honors, English II and English II Honors.  Please read closely to be certain you are reading the information for your specific class.  I will update this page regularly to keep you up-to-date with deadlines and assignments, and to share useful information that will help you become the most successful student you can be.  Trust me, English is an important course, one that will provide you with many valuable skills.  Language Arts is the art of communication, and no matter what path you choose in life, you will need to communicate in some way, shape or form.  I look forward to helping you shape your future.  

In preparation for our year together, please obtain the following school supplies: 

  • Pens and/or pencils
  • Colored pencils
  • 4x6 notecards
  • Loose leaf, college ruled notebook paper
  • 3-ring 1/2" binder or some kind of folder to use as a portfolio (a portfolio is a class requirement) - we can discuss this more when you come to class
  • 3-subject notebook and a composition notebook

Please do not feel it is necessary to buy additional colored pencils or loose leaf, college ruled notebook paper.  If you have already purchased these items for another class, you will be able to use the same items, most likely.

I am eager to begin the new school year with you and look forward to meeting you on Tuesday, August 5th during Student Orientation.  For our first day of school on Thursday, August 7th, please bring your two summer reading books to class with you, as well as your 3-subject notebook and composition notebook.  We will discuss the other school supplies on Thursday, but we will not be using them in class.
