Mrs. Contreras' Honors 9 English is now virtual. As this class tends to love discussion, this site has been created to share ideas, discuss class topics, collaborate on projects and become a community of writers about life and literature. With this wiki, the Contreras Honors 9 experience can happen all the time rather than every other school day. This website can be accessed and edited from any internet connection. However, students shouldn't assume that posting in their pajamas and bunny slippers will make it ok not to conduct themselves in a school appropriate manner. Feel free to browse student pages, make corrections and suggestions, comment on discussions and use this site to engage with students, teacher and content!
