Mrs. Alyssa Love
Welcome, students and parents!
My name is Alyssa Love, and I teach English 10 and 11. This year marks my 23rd year teaching at Osbourn, and I could not be more grateful for the opportunity to serve Manassas City families. Prior to joining the Osbourn faculty in 1996, I completed my undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Virginia, where I developed a passion for literature, writing, and ideas. I am excited to share my love of English with my students as we work together this year. It is my goal that they will leave my classroom not just with improved reading and writing skills, but with improved confidence as well.
For your reference, my 2018-2019 teaching schedule is provided below:
G1 English 11
G2 Honors English 10
G3 English 11
B2 Honors English 10
B3 English 10

For additional information about content, policies, and materials for the courses I teach, please consult the following course description documents. A hard copy of the course syllabus was sent home with each student at the beginning of the school year, and an electronic copy can be found in Google Classroom as well.

Success begins with great communication, so please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you have as we move through the year together. You may reach me by email or phone. Calls made during school hours will go directly to voicemail; leave a detailed message with contact information, and I will return your call as soon as my teaching schedule allows.
