English/Language

Kenneth Howes, English
"I am from the glorious North of California, Red Bluff, home of cattle and mullets. I have taught at Chico State as a student adjunct, in Russia as a countenanced foreigner, in Brentwood as a young idealist, in Korea as an enraged alien, but it is in Fall River where I have cultivated my grey hairs. My lovely wife has blessed me with three children to occupy the electronic screens of my home. I have several hobbies, but it is bicycling that rules them all and keeps the others from killing me."

Tamara Lopez, English
Hi,  I am Tamara Lopez! I have taught at Fall River Jr. Sr. High School for about eight years now. I grew up in Northern California on the coast, so I have a deep love for the ocean; however, my hiking experiences have instilled an equally deep respect for the mountains as well. I live with my thirteen year old son who keeps life pretty interesting, as do all of your children. There is never a dull day with my students! In my free time I enjoy baking, hiking,  writing, reading, and traveling. 
I teach AP English Language and Composition, English 10, English 8, and English 7. It is a great privilege to teach the students as they enter the school as seventh graders and then to see how much they have developed in their language skills by the tenth grade. The students at Fall River H.S. are truly special, and I am thankful to be back in the classroom to share my love of language with them.
