Welcome to English I

A QUICK REMINDER! If you have not already done so, please visit the following link in order to complete the summer reading assignment for English I. All summer reading assignments will be collected on the first day of school and will count as the first grade for the 2015-2016 school year. English-I-Summer-Assignment-1

My name is Ms. Kidwell and I’d like to welcome you to an amazing school and what I hope will be a fantastic year! Transitioning to a new environment can be a bit intimidating at first and, for this reason, I consider it a part of my duty as your teacher and class sponsor to help you navigate through and excel during this exciting first year here at BTHS.

I’d also like to take this time to note that, due to my marriage this past summer, my name will be changing to Mrs. Brown (assuming I ever get around to doing all the paperwork). However, in order to avoid confusion, I am requesting that my email address and contact information remain the same for the remainder of this school year.


Please feel free to email me any time at [email protected] with questions or concerns. I try to respond to emails immediately, but will respond within 24 hours in the worst case scenario.
