Mrs. Heather Starnes
I am a graduate of Appalachian State University and a proud teacher at Hibriten High. I love teaching English, and I love the English language. World Literature and American Literature are my specialties. With World Lit, I enjoy teaching The Metamorphosis, texts on the Holocaust, and some plays: Jewels of the Shrine and Julius Caesar. American Literature is special: The Great Gatsby, Of Mice and Men, The Crucible. I feel there's never enough time for American Literature!
I also serve on Hibriten's School Improvement Team and Faculty Council. I believe in advocating for students and their success. I also believe in communication and effort. A student's job is to learn as much as they can in order to be ready to face the working or collegiate world. I believe in strong morals and ethics, and I expect my students to demonstrate respect and proper decorum.
I use Google Classroom as my online learning platform.
Students can access assignments and see the lessons we have mastered.
Parents: If you would like to be a part of Classroom, send me an email with your name and your child's name. I will add you!
