An emphasis on vocabulary and composition skills will be an on-going part of the program. The course includes studies of various literary genres: short story, poetry, novel, drama, and non-fiction. The development of critical reading and writing skills is a major emphasis of the course. Many assignments in this class integrate artistic undertones.

Hello!  My name is Latesha Sigur.  I have been teaching secondary English for the last fifteen years. My passion is teaching literature appreciation as well as written expression. In my classes students will be exposed to a variety of text from all different genres. This will ultimately assist them in meeting the Common Core standards. They will be given in depth time to critically think about each piece. The goal is to assist students in their reading and writing skills so they are prepared for their future as artists or whatever they desire.  


This year my office hours are during the first block of school and by appointment. 


Attached you will see a link to my course syllabus.  Please email me if you have any questions or concerns. 


thank you!
