Mrs. Amber Rahman

My name is Amber Rahman.  This will be my fifteenth year of teaching English Language Arts, my sixth at Midland Valley High School.  I graduated from Bowling Green State University in Ohio with my Bachelors of Science in Education in 2005.  I earned my Masters degree in Education from Southern Wesleyan University in May of 2010.  My licensure area of expertise is Integrated Language Arts, I am certified to teach grades 7 through 12 and have an endorsement to teach gifted and talented students.  I also have my Read to Succeed endorsement.  According to the No Child Left Behind legislation, I am considered a highly qualified teacher.  I want you to know that I am always approachable and that I will do my best to help your child succeed. 

I am married and have three daughters.  In my spare time I enjoy reading, baking, watching movies and cooking shows, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.  I look forward to working with your students in the 2020-2021 school year!

 

2020-2021 SUMMER READING (REQUIRED)

Good afternoon students and parents!
 
I wanted to get the word out to you that Summer Reading will still be a requirement as you head into an English or AP course
 
I do not yet have the 2020 brochure to share with you, so I am including the link to last year's Media Center page with the Summer Reading book lists and resources:    https://www.acpsd.net/site/Default.aspx?PageID=22002
 
The lists and information will be the same for 2020, AND you will all take an assessment over the novel you choose to read within the first 2 weeks of the 2020-2021 school year.  You need to pick ONE of these four options and read the novel completely--I encourage you to take notes while you read about the plot events, setting, characters, climax, resolution, etc.  The assessment typically is 75 to 100 questions about the entire book.

Please check out the MVHS Media Center page at the link above, they have great information about where to rent, borrow, or buy the novel you choose to read.  

THIS INFO WILL ALSO BE MAILED HOME WITH YOUR FINAL REPORT CARD.

Have a good summer and happy reading!
