    I've started this page to give parents and students a place to learn a bit about my class.  Feel free to browse the site.  On some pages you will find resources that provide help in completing work, while on others you will find contact information.  

    I look forward to working with you.

    • Being a successful student in my classes requires:

      1) Regular attendance
      2) A positive attitude
      3) A commitment to work
      4) Good study skills
      5) Ability to manage tight deadlines
    • The following supplies are recommended:
      • Blue or black ink pen
      • Highlighter
      • Loose-leaf notebook paper
      • Notebook or binder
    • Homework policy

              Completing work outside of class is essential to keeping pace in my classes as well as preparing for life outside of school.  Being able to complete work on your own demonstrates mastery, gives you an opportunity to perform on your own and develops your ability to handle rigor in a society that increasingly expects more from its citizens to be successful.  Once you finish high school and either move into the job market or into college, you will face many situations where you'll be tasked with a challenging assignment, given little direction and still be expected to deliver.  My class is meant to prepare you for that.
