Welcome to Mr. Andrew Smith's Homepage

Salutations!

The first semester of the 2020-2021 school year is well underway, and it is be my thirteenth year as a secondary English teacher, and my twelfth year with the Rocky View School Division at Bert Church High School. I have a Bachelors Degree in Arts (English) and a Bachelors Degree in Education from the University of Lethbridge.

This year, I will be teaching two sections of English 10-2, one section of English 20-1, two sections of English 30-2, and one Creative Writing option I am excited and eager to begin the year - we have lots of great literature to read and study together - and I will endeavour to provide all students in my charge with an engaging, enriching, and entertaining exploration of English literature and language.

At the heart of my practices as a classroom teacher are three pedagogical values.

  1. I believe that learning (anything) will enrich your life.
  2. I believe that while we each have our own unique strengths and struggles, anyone can learn anything if the desire and drive to do so is present.
  3. I believe that passion for the subject and positive relationships with students are at the heart of an engaging classroom.

Remember, if you attend all classes, participate in our activities, debates, and discussions, and complete all assignments, I will GUARANTEE your success in any course I teach.
