Welcome to Livaudais’s English Classroom

I have developed this site for both my students and parents as well as other English teachers.  On the main page, you will find daily posts that detail what we are doing in class, homework assignments, and downloads for any notes, handouts, stories, etc that we will use in class.


I also have pages dedicated to the different levels of English as well as particular eras, units, novels, etc. for other English teachers who may be looking for new ideas.  If anyone would like to share their lesson plans as well, please email me.

Lastly, I have put together a research paper section for both students and teachers looking for lessons, help, handouts, videos, etc to assist in the research paper process.  Please email me with questions, suggestions, or ideas.

This semester, I will be using Remind to text homework and due date reminders to students and guardians. To receive messages via text, text 81010.
