Degrees and Certifications:
BA Literature Teaching Certification English Language Arts & Reading 8-12 Supplemental ESL Certification
Ms. Cheryl Voskamp
I grew up between the Bay and the Permian Basin. I began my degree at UT Permian Basin and graduated from UofH-Clear Lake with a BA in Literature and Teaching Certification in English Language Arts and Reading 8-12. This is the start of my ninth full year teaching, and I've had the pleasure of teaching almost everything English related from 9th-12th grade, Reading, STAAR Review, and AP Language and Composition. Secretly, 10th grade English is my absolute favorite grade level, and I'm currently teaching English II and English II PAP. I am happy to be a member of the Manvel High team and excited to see my students bloom into savvy critical thinkers who find joy in reading and writing. I greatly enjoy community building with family and guardians and hope you will pitch in to model your own joy of reading and/or writing.
English II classes are 1st & 3rd-7th periods with Conference Hours during 2nd period (8:19-9:12 am) Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Please feel free to contact me to schedule a conference via phone, Google Meet, or in person. Students moved into my class will be emailed a join invitation for Google Classroom.
