Subject: English I
Welcome to freshman English class! I have created and planned many activities for this school year that I hope will be fun, enriching, and educational. My hope is that I create an environment of alacrity, structure, and organization. Please note that the curriculum for this course is rigorous and dense. Because I have high standards for all of my students, they should fully expect to be challenged.
My name is Taliena Koch and this is my first year teaching at Desert Ridge High School. Before coming here, I taught 8th grade English/Honors English at Desert Ridge Junior High for three years. In addition to teaching English I, I am also the DRHS publications (La Cordillera Yearbook, Ridge Magazine, and This is Ridge Blog) adviser.
