Gwyndolyn Savens, English teacher, has three minors from the University of Texas, which she loved attending, especially because it’s the “Live Music Capital of the World.”

Savens teaches American literature, freshmen literature and composition and gifted English.

Savens taught eighth grade at Bayless Junior High before coming back to WGHS.

About what she would want her students to know, Savens said, “High school is the only time in your life that people expect you to be good at everything, and when you get into the real world, you’ll find the thing you’re good at, and you will build on it, so keep trying.”

When shes not teaching, Savens enjoys to listen to any type of music, anywhere from rock to folk, as long as it has good words and a good beat.

Savens also loves to read books by Jane Austen, Judy Bloom and others.
