8th Grade English
Hello! My name is William Ronald and I am the 8th-grade English Language Arts teacher. I am new to Near West and am glad to join this vibrant community.
Here are some fun facts about me: I am a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago. I have worked as a newspaper reporter, a web designer, and have taught middle school and high school. Also, I enjoy pets, long walks, and a variety of literature from the classics to fantasy and science fiction.
I am enthusiastic in sharing my love for literature, reading, and writing with our incredible students. My hope is that my class will help give the students the skills and knowledge that they need to succeed in high school – and beyond.
