Hello and Welcome! My name is Amarou Yoder, and I teach LA 9 (periods 1, 3, and 6) and AP Language and Composition (periods 2,5).  My classroom is E204.  I'm also coaching Speech and Debate.

    I’m so excited for the coming year! 

    This is my second year at WLHS. Prior to coming to West Linn High, I taught secondary language arts (grades 10-12) for eight years in the Renton School District in Washington, during which time I also received my National Board Certification.  More recently, I’ve had the great pleasure and privilege of studying for my PhD in Education at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, upon which I spent the summer working.  This also means that I have some very recent (and continuing) understandings about the stresses and joys of being a student, especially regarding the challenges and rewards of writing.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns and constructive feedback.  Email is the best way to reach me.  I will respond promptly.  My email address is yodera@wlwv.k12.or.us

    I use Google Classroom.  Parents and guardians, this means that you can check your child's google classroom page for my class, and see what, if any, assignments are due, and/or missing.  

    A little more about me:  I like cats, cooking, hockey and gardening.
