Ms. Corum RSS
Welcome!  This is my thirteenth year teaching at Gresham High School, and I am looking forward to all the learning, collaboration, and discoveries that come over the course of this school year.  As in past years, I will be teaching IB English A Literature HL1 and English 1-2.  What's new is that I'll also be picking up a section of IB English A Literature HL2.  This summer, I attended the AVID Summer Institute in Sacramento, CA and spent lots of time exploring some of the new texts we'll be reading in English class this year.

Before starting my career at GHS, I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature at Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, PA. During that time, I also took courses in French and education, which led me to study abroad for a year in Grenoble, France at Universite Stendhal III and also some work as an observer and intern at the School in Rose Valley in Rose Valley, PA.  After graduating from college, I returned to my home town of Astoria, Oregon to serve for two years as an Americorps Member, coordinating service learning and other youth programs.  In 2004, I earned my Master of Arts degree from Lewis & Clark College's Graduate School of Education.

Since then, my coursework and conference attendance has centered around teaching-related topics such as literacy, English language, inquiry, critical thinking, assessment practices, AVID, and the International Baccalaureate program.  I'm particularly passionate about equity, college and career readiness, and making rigorous coursework accessible to all students.  Outside of school, I love reading (no surprise there), watching films, hiking, camping, traveling, gardening, knitting, and spending time with family and friends.

Please consult my SchoolFusion pages if you're looking for class-related resources.  Students may also make use of Google Classroom to stay on top of assignments and announcements.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by email at hakala3@gresham.k12.or.us or by phone at (503) 674-5500.

Best Wishes,
Ellie Corum
