Prentice, Dan (English: English 12)

Hello parents,

My bio for teaching began when I started as an after school recreation supervisor for 5-12 year olds in 1999 at my alma mater, The University of Illinois. I later worked in special education at Hinsdale Central High School in Illinois before moving to Northern Arizona to get my MA in Education. I then worked at Coconino High School, Flagstaff High School, and during a brief move to California, I worked at South Tahoe High School. I began teaching at NPA as a special education teacher before transitioning to become the Writing teacher for five years. This year, I decided on going back to high school to teach 12th Grade English. I also teach Creative Writing at the middle and high school level.

This class is Senior English. We are going to spend the year preparing ourselves for life after high school. Lessons to start to the year are focused on college exploration, and after that, we will focus on skills necessary to be successful in college and life after high school in general. My curriculum will be evolving throughout the year as this is my first year teaching this course.

I have the pleasure of teaching Creative Writing for both the middle and high school this year. We focus on having fun while writing in different genres and forms throughout the year. We will write poetry, short stories, and we will also explore other topics like writing about film.
