Amesbury High School's Mission Statement
Amesbury High School is committed to inspiring all its students to become problem solvers who take responsibility for themselves and their learning. Encouraging this journey toward excellence, the AHS community will support and work together with integrity, modeling acceptance, collaboration, and respect. School pride permeates the culture of AHS through time-tested traditions blended with student-driven innovations and initiatives.
Welcome to my website. I am a life-long resident of Amesbury and graduated from AHS in 1989. In 1993, I earned a B.A. in English and a minor in Secondary Education from Fitchburg State College. In 1998, I earned my M.Ed. from Lesley College.
I have worked in three schools in the district for the past twenty-six years. From 1993-1994 I was a tutor at AES where I worked within the school's Special Education Department. I then went on to teach eighth grade Language Arts from 1994-1997 at AMS.
Twenty-two years ago, I moved up to teach here at AHS. Within these last twenty-two years, I have taught grades nine, eleven, and twelve. Also, I have been a class advisor to the classes of 2001, 2006, 2013, and 2017. In addition, I was an assistant ice hockey coach for nineteen years, and have been an Assistant Athletic Director for the past eighteen years.
It is my hope that all students get involved within our school and challenge themselves to do well in all areas of their lives.
I can be contacted at 978-388-4800 ext. 2320 or at email@example.com.
I teach the following courses at Amesbury High School:
*Honors American Studies II- Grade 11 ( This is a full-year, co-taught course with Dr. Walsh of the Social Studies department. It begins where Honors American Studies I leaves off after sophomore year.) Starting in 2018, it is one of the pathway courses with Southern New Hampshire University. Students will be able to choose to take this course and earn six college credits through SNHU.
Honors American Literature II- Grade 11. Starting 2018, it is one of the pathway courses with Southern New Hampshire University. Students will be able to choose to take this course and earn three college credits through SNHU. This course runs the second half of each year and is the ELA connection/component to AP US History taught by Dr. Walsh.
*American Literature CP- Grade 11
All homework assignments and class announcements will now be posted on my/our Google classroom sites.
