D. Coppage


 
Position Teacher

January 1992, I was hired by Windthorst ISD to teach the Challenge Class. That class was the source of much experience, quite a bit of laughter, and not a few tears, and it was my introduction to teaching.  

Since then, I've had the pleasure of teaching at Windthorst High School for 26 years.  Beginning my 27th year, I am rooted more firmly than ever in this school and this town.  

For me, both reading and writing are essential for the best quality of life. Reading takes us to places and times we might never reach except through books.  It opens doors and shows us how others think and feel.  We can try on other lives, other attitudes with a stretch of our imagination.  

Writing helps everyone to communicate more effectively.  There are times we aren't sure what we think about a certain issue, but start writing about it, and the answer will come!  Writing gives us the ability to express our ideas, our feelings, or just expand our creativity.  

So although not everyone thinks English class is the most fun, the most interesting, or just the best class ever, the students at some point realize that English class gives them tools they need for the rest of their lives.
