Creative Writing: Mr. Vertacnik

Hello!

 

Please accept my apologies for missing this important evening. Currently, I am finishing my first summer of graduate work toward an M.A. in English at The Bread Loaf School of English (administered through Middlebury College) in Ripton, Vermont. I’m excited to be teaching your child this year, and wanted, despite my absence this evening, for you to have some important information about my class, especially in regards to how to stay in contact with me throughout the year. More information will be available on the syllabus after August 10.

 

All best,

 

Mr. V

Classroom “Absent” Bin

 

This will contain hard copies of all assignments for my classes, arranged by date assigned and changed every nine weeks. Students are responsible for retrieving their own assignments from this bin after an absence.

 

 

Class Materials

 

While I will gladly accept any donated materials such as tissues, hand sanitizer, pencils and loose-leaf paper, the only materials required for my class are (preferably) a 1 1/2 or 2” binder with 5 divider tabs. If this is not possible, a sturdy folder dedicated to my class could suffice as well.
