Welcome to Tomball High School! We have a great year planned for sophomore English, full of activities and interesting reads. I'm looking forward to the 2021-22 school year and getting to know my students!
 
In my 7 years as an educator I have taught online, hybrid, and face-to-face courses for grades 10-12 and in college. I currently teach AP Capstone, English II, and an online dual credit course with Lone Star College.  I believe that English courses should be accessible to everyone and a platform for growth.  I know that becoming better readers, writers, and thinkers will help students now in their academic careers and later in their future endeavors.  Honesty and integrity are important to me and I expect students to avoid plagiarism and complete assignments to the best of their ability.  In addition, AP students must abide by the AP College Board syllabus expectations.
 
My mission for my classes is to not only help each student become successful, but also to equip all students with tools that will help them long after they leave Tomball ISD. If there is anything at all that I can do to help you and your student, please reach out to me so I can help.  I am an advocate for your student and will do all I can to help them.  To foster that end, I am available for tutoring frequently.  Students should speak to me and we can arrange something before or after school in order to make up work or get extra help.  The best way to reach me is to email directly (brandykethley@tomballisd.net).
 
I look forward to meeting and working with you all in the near future!
