    The purpose of this website is to provide students and their guardians with information regarding the classes that I will be teaching this year – with that, hello! I'm Mr. Mooney, and this will be my sixth year at West Linn High School. I am very excited to return to the community and spend the next year learning from the diversely talented staff and students at WLHS.  

    Before joining West Linn, I have worked as a theatre educator, camp counselor, and research assistant in Oregon, New York, and Minnesota (my home state). I attended Lewis & Clark College for my Masters of Arts in Teaching. Outside of the classroom, I am usually found standing in a river (as pictured above) or in a kitchen. If you have any questions about the courses I teach please feel free to email me, as that is the best way to contact me.
    All assignments and relevant information can be found on Google Classroom

    Grades will be updated (at the latest) every Friday afternoon. I weigh assignments by the following categories:

                            Essays 40%
                            Final 20%
                            Quizzes & Reading Comprehension 25%
                            In Class Assignments 15%
    Please contact me with any questions that are not answered on this site. My email address is mooneyr@wlwv.k12.or.us
