Hello Clark Cougars and Clark Cougar Parents!
My name is Jentry Vines and this is my first year at Clark High School. I am beyond excited to be a part of the Clark Family. They say it's the promised land here at Clark, and I couldn't agree more! As an educator for the past eleven years, I can honestly say that I love what I do. One of my greatest joys is sharing the passion I have for writing and literature with my students. Sadly, writing is becoming a lost art, and it's my mission to foster a love for writing within my students-one that will stay with them long after they leave the walls of my classroom. I want them to see the magical places writing can take them because, "Once you write something down, it's yours forever."
I teach English I and II Pre-Ap and my students are such an incredible gift to me. Perhaps John Keating said it best in the film Dead Poet's Society:
"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."
