White, Tonya - English

Welcome to My Classroom!

 Mrs. White

I have been teaching at Erwin for twenty-two years, and I love what I do!   I am currently teaching English III AP and English III Honors.   My class is designed as an exploration of the American dream--past, present, and future.  We also focus on those Americans who have been persecuted and denied the dream.  We do not have an EOC test, so our test preparation is mainly geared to help in SAT/ACT readiness as well as the Advanced placement exam for the AP class. For the English III Honors class, we will focus on the NC Final Exam preparation.

 I love teaching; I can't imagine doing anything else.  I also love being a mom.  Children are the most wonderful gift from God. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Eddie, and our two sons, Tanner, currently a student at AB-Tech, and Holden, a freshman at Erwin this year.  We also have three extremely cute dogs, Roscoe, Lucy, and Gertie, and two cats, Click and Scout.  I received my BA from UNC-Asheville and my MA from Ashford University in Iowa.  One of my greatest educational experiences was studying at Cambridge University in England as a N.C. Teaching Fellow.
