• Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. My name is Diana Fossum and I am looking forward to guiding and challenging you in the English classroom. This is my 11th year as a Spartan, and with each year I learn more and more about myself and our amazing Broad Run community. My wish for you is that you come to class with an open mind and a willingness to try on new styles of writing and new genres of literature. Your time in high school can present an amazing growth opportunity for you to find your own unique voice in your writing and to develop a passion for reading, and it is my fervent desire to help you with these life skills. In my experience, the students who are most open to new ideas learn the most about themselves, ultimately helping them to navigate the larger classroom of life. New this year to Broad Run are student Chromebooks which will make our discovery process even more expedient and wide reaching. Most of our work will be accessible on Google Classroom. You will be given a code in class, or can see below.  Please go there for assignments. This site here is reserved mostly for helpful videos, PPTs, and other links that may enhance your understanding.
