Welcome to the English 9 and 10 Alternative Program
Hello! I'm Mary Garza and have been a teacher at AGHS for 35 years. I have taught English in the Alternative Department for the last 7 years. The Alternative Program is designed to give students, who may have had struggles academically in the past, an opportunity to catch up on skills they need to move forward at grade level. I have classes that are about half the size of the regular classes, which allows me to work one-on-one with students and meet their individual needs. Besides providing academic support, I care about the whole well-being of each student and am able to help them access any social- emotional resources they may need.
I always look forward to getting to know the students and help them reach their personal and academic goals.
Please refer to the attached syllabi for more information on specific policies and procedures.
