“A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.” A memorable quote by Helen Keller which seems to encourage us to be life-long learners.  Of course this quote does not encourage directionlessness.  We should have core values and beliefs that keep us grounded, but be honest enough to say that none of us have all the answers.

In our English Language Arts class we will study  the complexities of language as it creates meaning in literature of different genres.  Also the mechanics of writing,  meaningful dialogue and creative expression will be encouraged as we use what God has so richly bestowed upon us.
