Hello! Welcome to my web page! My name is Mrs. Kjellander. This is my 14th year at Watson High School. This year I will be teaching English I, IV, and Independent Study of English I. I have attended inservices during the summer and hope to implement new strategies and techniques in the classroom that will allow each student to reach his or her potential for success in the classroom and on the STAAR/EOC tests.
We will also be learning about Thinking Maps and how they will unlock the mystery of defining in context, describing, comparing and contrasting, classifying, whole-part relationship, sequencing, cause and effect, and seeing analogies. Sound difficult? No way! Once we learn them together, you will love how easy it is for you to select the correct map that will help us to think critically and to analyze literature and poetry.
The curricula for my classes meet the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) state requirements.
I look forward to setting and reaching individual goals with your student(s).
Together, I believe we will have a fun and successful year as we work toward graduation.
