Hello Parents and Students!
Welcome to the world of English! I am Angelica (Angie) Black and I will be your instructor for English II Pre-AP. I am very excited to be at PISD for my eighth year as a classroom teacher. In addition my to teaching duties, I am also the campus UIL Academics Coordinator and UIL Ready Writing Coach.
I am a 2005 graduate of North Lamar High School and a 2010 graduate of Texas A&M-Commerce with a Bachelor of Arts-English. I attended PJC and TJC on a cheerleading scholarship and transferred to Commerce in 2007. I completed my observations at North Lamar High School and graduated Lamar University in 2016 with my Masters of Education Administration.
I am an avid reader and enjoy tumbling, biking, working out, and watching true crime T.V. in my free time. I most enjoy spending time with my husband and son, as I am the mother of a fantastic 10 year old little boy. We are also very excited to be welcoming a new bundle of joy to our family in December of this year! I will be out of the classroom on maternity leave in January and February of 2020 but, no worries, we have my class well taken care of:) My family and I are very excited to be with PHS for the 2019-2020 school year! I am very fortunate to teach in the same town where I was born and raised and cannot wait to the see what this year holds in store for my students and I!
