Classroom Rules

  1. Be Respectful
  2. Be Responsible
  3. Be Ready to Learn


The consequence you get will depend on how serious your infraction was


Because Public Speaking is a HS credit class and most work will be done via projects and group work. If work needs to be completed or worked on after school, students will have to schedule dates and times they will stay after school.  

About Ms. Amos

Ms. Amos in NYCMy name is Vanessa Amos, and this is my 7th year as a teacher.  The first four years, I taught at Armendariz Middle School where I was primarily a Public Speaking teacher.  This is my third year at Canyon Hills, where I'm very excited to be back to teaching Public Speaking and Journalism.  I'm born and raised in El Paso, and a proud EPHS Tiger alumna!  

I graduated from the University of Texas, El Paso with a degree in Multidisciplinary Studies, concentration in Communications. I'm a proud member of The Alpha Phi Women's Fraternity, where I joined when I was in school at California State University, East Bay.  I don't have any kids, but I do have two dogs--Martini (who lives with my parents) and Pepper--who I consider like my children.  I am currently the 7th grade girls basketball coach at Canyon Hills.  Go Cobras!
