Elsberry High School
English I is a class required by all students at EHS. Jessica Krussel begins her third year at Elsberry School teaching English I to freshmen, and speech and drama for middle school and high school. Since public speaking is the number one fear of people, hopefully Krussel can ease some student’s fears in her speech class as they spend time learning different aspects of public speaking and techniques to relax while speaking in front of others. In English I students started the year by reading and analyzing short stories. Currently, they are finishing up a mock trial based on the story “The Most Dangerous Game”. Students will do a little adjusting this year as Krussel will be out on maternity leave, as she is expecting her first child in October.
