Hello students and parents! My name is Mr. Chatman. I'm looking forward to teaching your child(ren) for the upcoming school year. Not only do I teach a normal English class for freshmen, I'll have honors classes this year also. Feel free to check out this page for updates to the syllabus, lesson plans, etc. I'm able to be contacted at any time. Let's have a great year!


Updated Classroom Rules (8/9/23) 

No profanity. No use of cell phones, AirPods, or other technological devices (besides school-distributed laptop) unless given DIRECT permission from Mr. Chatman. If I assign seats, they’ll stay assigned according to my discretion. Finally, please respect the speaker in the classroom. Whether I or another student is speaking, it’s impolite to talk while they’re speaking.
