Mr. Christos C. Zodiatis
Hello Parents and Students,
My name is Christos Zodiatis and I teach English 12 Honors as well as the Dual-Enrollment English 12. I am excited to start my fourth year here at Osbourn.
Previously, I spent a year at Sachem School District in New York, teaching eighth and twelfth grade English. After that, I spent three years working at a residential school in Lake Grove, where I also taught English, grades seven through twelve.
My goals are simple: To get students ready for college and/or career writing experiences. I want my dual-enrollment students to leave the class feeling somewhat prepared for what the college environment will throw at them. I also want my students to earn their six credits from my course and shave some time and expenses off from their college experience.
In addition, I want my Twelfth Grade Honors classes to continue building on reading and writing skills. These skills will help prepare them for either post-high school education programs as well as the work force.
Besides that, I want my all of my students to see the value of English Language Arts. In addition to teaching, I spent 20 years working in the retail world, so I have a strong awareness of what the "business world" is like. As someone who ran a business for multiple years, I am fully aware of the skills required in the workforce, bringing that level of practicality which students always crave into my classroom.
I also am teaching ENG 111 and ENG 112, the courses I teach at Osbourn, at NOVA in Manassas. This experience helps me to keep in touch with the college curriculum.
Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions or concerns.
