I hope you are looking forward to a wonderful year at Blackman High School. English III is both challenging and rewarding. Students will be improving as thinkers, writers, and readers as we progress through the year. I expect each student to bring his or her best efforts to class each day, and I promise to do the same. I am looking forward to a great year!
