Mr. Layne Ward
I look forward to teaching Japanese and Freshman Cornerstone this year. After 25 years of teaching, I still find each year's students unique and exciting!
Freshman Cornerstone is a class meant to help students get their bearings and succeed not only in high school, but at home and in life. I really enjoy watching students consider their worth and make goals for the future.
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.
