Devi Pappas

 I received my Bachelor's of Arts degree from Bradley University in Peoria, IL.  I have been teaching composition and literature since 2011.  I began teaching in Chicago and transitioned to Dwight in 2014.  While teaching in Chicago, I also worked as a tutor at Sylvan Learning Center.  I currently teach Composition I, Composition II, English I, and Novel.  Because I have worked with at-risk students and at Sylvan, I believe it is truly important for students to take a hands-on approach to learning as well as reflect on their own learning.  

 My literature courses do a lot of partner/group activities and class discussions where they work without me as much as possible to figure out what the text says before we go over the material together.  As a result, my literature courses are required to annotate their texts.  In my composition classes/units, students do a majority of their work in class as well as have conferences with me to make sure they are giving their best work and understand the assignment.  

I get to school at 6:30 A.M. every morning; therefore,  if students need extra help or need to make up an assessment, I am always available at this time.  If students ask for me to stay after school for additional help or make ups, I am always happy to stay after to help.  


Please view my website.  This is for all of my students and has supplements and digital copies of what we do in class.
