Ms. Rosemary Keller
I am Ms. Keller, and here are somethings that I want to share with you. First, teaching is an occuaption that I enjoy; this is my 42nd year. For the past four years, I have taught English II Honors and English II College Prep. I teach because I want people to know the things that I know, and I want them to develop a desire to continuously seek knowledge, especially about anything that interest them. I am a believer in the quote that " learning never stops," regardless of one's age. Therefore, I "push" until I think that I have my students' best work. Second, I love God. I believe that if I put God first, "I can do all things, and that all things work together for good for those who love the Lord." Third, I love my family. I call my family Keller Nation because there are so many of us. We love and support each other despite our personal flaws. Finally, I cherish friendships because I know that the relationships that I have with people make me rich, not material things. Oh, my hobbies are reading, traveling, and working in my yard.
