- Benjamin Franklin
High School ELA / Creative Writing Teacher
I am eager to enable students to use their own acquired knowledge to analyze and
critique their own work and the work of others so that they may better
understand the world around them. This is a valuable skill not only in
ELA/Creative Writing, but in life itself. I possess an ever-expanding passion
for literature in all categories and writing, and hope to be considered for an
ELA/Creative Writing position.
