Welcome to Beginners – Defense Against the Dark Arts.  I will be your professor, Prof. Neville Prongs, and my new assistant for the year is Edmund Smethwyck who is here to help me with you lot.  A little about me, I am a a new Slytherin professor and this is my third year teaching this class.  Edmund is a third year Ravenclaw Prefect who is extremely active in his house.  However, since it is a beginner’s class the subject matter taught will be what a student would learn in their first three years in the magical world.  

Look around the class site and let me know if you have any questions.

In order to be accepted into this class you must complete all parts of the first assignment and send it to the class e-mail. Once you have done this I will accept you into the class. The extra credit can be turned in seperately.
