Mr. James Rounds
Welcome English 9 and 12! I am excited to have you in my classroom! Both classes will read widely in world and American literature, and do a lot of writing as well. Be ready! if you need to get in contact with me, email is easiest.
Here's a little of my background: I was born in Colorado, raised in Northern California, and went back to Colorado for college. After working in fine arts auctions in San Francisco for a few years, I went to Oregon to earn my Master's Degree and begin teaching. I've never been shy about moving and traveling; in the last few years my wife and I have visited states from Alaska to Florida, as well as Mexico, Germany, and India. This past summer (2018) I won a Fulbright Fellowship and spent a month in Turkey, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan. I'm always excited to experience new places and cultures!
