Mr. Layne Ward
I look forward to teaching Japanese and English 9 this year. After 27 years of teaching, I still find each year's students unique and exciting!
Japanese is near and dear to my heart. I learned to speak Japanese in the Hiroshima area before I studied Japanese and Japanese literature in college. I am a bit of a linguistics geek, but I hope to instill in students an interest of not only language, but culture as well.
The English curriculum for Freshman has great stories to read and write about. The ability to communicate effectively through reading and writing is perhaps the most universally used skill you cover in school.
Lastly, I am Eagle's driver ed coordinator and the assistant ski club advisor, please email me if you have questions about either of those topics.
