Welcome to Room 9 (Mr. Vaughan) English & Electives

Welcome to 2023-24 school year.  This is my 33rd year teaching and my 20th at Redondo Shores/Patricia Dreizler High (26th in RBUSD).  I teach English 9-12, Creative Writing and Reading Film.  In addition, I am privileged to be a part of the ASB Newsletter Committee.  This school year promises to be challenging and exciting, as always. Students will read and write a lot in English.  The ability to reflect and analyze ourselves and what we read and write are foundational for a successful life. The culminating senior project THE PERSONAL CREED brings together all of these in a sweeping narrative of each student's life.


I am going to be starting the year much the way I ended last year, with an analog/digital approach.  Students will be doing a combination of digital (online) and analog curriculum (hard copies of work).

I will work hard to ensure the success of all students and expect the same in return.   Please don’t hesitate to contact me--via email--with any concerns or questions.

Be on Time. Be Respectful. Be Prepared. Be Successful.

I push for all my students to do a MINIMUM of 2 contracts (assignments/labs) per week.
