Alys Williams' Learning Story


One of my fondest memories of being educated occured in high school. I had an amazing Honors English teacher named Ms. Kelly. She inspired us to “think outside the box” before that term became a buzzword. She challenged us daily and required us to complete timed writings, essays, groups discussions, skits. . . You name it, and she had us doing it. We were alwyas on the edge of our seats waiting to see what she had in store for us daily.Because of her example, I have been teaching high school English for the past 25 years. I love my job and hope that I can inspire young minds as Ms. Kelly inspired me.
