Welcome to Mrs. Corbey's Website
I have been teaching English at Anoka High School since 1990; I have taught all grades and levels of English! During the 2014-15 school year I will be teaching English 10, English 12 and College in the Schools (CIS) writing. This year, for the first time, Anoka High School is opening a writing center for appointment and drop in help with classroom writing assignments. I will be coordinating this venture, so look forward to more information as how students can access this service. Writing is both challenging and empowering. Good writing skills are critical for success in high school and beyond.
I am a St. Paul native and attended Derham Hall High School (now Cretin-Derham Hall). My college alma mater is Carleton College where I graduated with a B.A. in English, and earned my masters degree in Liberal Studies at Hamline University. Though I was a serious competitive swimmer from the age of ten through college, I now dabble in completely recreational athletics--gardening, biking, walking, cross-country skiing and many other outdoor activities. I love to travel and spend time with my family; I could definitely get used to a life of traveling adventures.
I look forward to getting back in the classroom and talking about literature, writing and ideas. I am available for questions, help or make up most days after school--I generally stay at school until 4:30. My availability before school is limited to 20 minutes before first period.
