Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Chris Slovak and I teach English II and English III. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Sam Houston State University and I love my job here at Willis High School. It is going to be a great year and I look forward to progressing together into this semester.
I will be challenging my students on a daily basis and expecting the most out of them. I know they are all capable of great things and I will not allow them to settle for less. This does not, however, mean I will overwork them. Our class will be centered on project-based learning and will consist mostly of projects, class discussions and debates, writing, and activities that require them to think outside the box. I hope to have an energetic classroom that combines learning and fun and ensures the safety and comfort of each and every student.
Parents, I want to thank each of you for allowing me to become involved in your child’s learning experience and I hope to be a stepping stone to great things in their futures. I encourage you to please contact me if you have any concerns or questions throughout the course of the year. I believe strongly that we are now a team with the mutual goal of educating your children and getting them ready for the real world, which cannot be accomplished without working together. I look forward to getting to know you and embarking on this journey together.
I encourage students to come in for tutorials any time they feel they might be falling behind or might need extra help. I am available before and after school upon request and every Monday and Thursday after school. Please let me know during the day if you plan to come in the afternoon.
