Kress, D.

Hello My Name Is...

<Mrs. Kress>

I have been an English teacher for 30 years in both public and private schools.  This year is my 21st year at South Park High School.  I am an alumni of Grove City College, where I earned a bachelor's degree in communications and literature.   Once I began my teaching career, I completed a master's degree at Western Maryland College, which is now known as McDaniel College.  

This year I am teaching English 11 Honors, English 11 College Prep, AP English Language and Composition, and Contemporary Novels.  I have taught most levels at all grade levels through the years, but I am particularly fond of American literature, which is the focal point for 11th grade English.  As times have changed, I have worked hard to keep up with methods of teaching that will best benefit students.  I am looking forward to this year's Chromebook initiative.  The focus in my class is skill based - I strive to help every student develop the skills needed to be successful in college or in careers.
