Mrs. Cheryl JeffriesEnglish Department ChairpersonPhone: (336) 771-4500Email: CDJeffries @wsfcs.k12.nc.usIt is my pleasure to have your child as a student this year! I look forward to partnering with you as we work together to ensure the success of your child in his or her English class. Never hesitate to call or e-mail me if you have any questions or concerns! In English, students will focus on the following communication skills: reading, writing, viewing, speaking, listening AND critical thinking skills.The aim of education should be to teach us rather HOW to think, than what to think -- RATHER to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.~Bill BeattieThe MERE imparting of information is NOT education. Above all things, the effort must result in making a man do and think for himself.
