My name is Mr. Logan Brubaker and I am thrilled to introduce myself as your English Language Arts teacher. I graduated from Tri-Village in 2008 and earned a Bachelors of Science in Secondary Education from Indiana University in 2013. I married another Tri-Village graduate Kaila Burns on June 28, 2014. Many of you may recognize me as a basketball coach, student-teacher, or as a member of the community for the past 15 years. As a student I dreamed of one day teaching at TVHS and provide another positive role model to my students. I am confident in saying that no one is more excited to be a part of the TVHS as I am for this upcoming school year.
This year’s English Language Arts is a very demanding course. We will cover 10-15 chapters within our vocabulary workbook, read four core pieces of literature, practice writing on a daily basis, and practice the necessary skills in order for students to be successful . Throughout this course I will stress a higher level of thinking and we will analyze the material we are learning. Appropriate analysis will stem from comprehension, attention to detail, and the willingness to think of our classroom material on a grander scale. I want students to build personal relationships with what they are learning thus igniting their thought process about their own lives and futures.
I have extremely high expectations of all my students, and for that I will not apologize. I am asking for your help to maintain those expectations by checking with your son/daughter periodically to make sure that his/her work is being done. I am available to help students individually before school, during my prep periods, and after school. I have included my classroom expectations with this letter and will be giving each student a unit plan the first day of school. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me through email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to another exciting and successful school year at Tri-Village High School!
