Welcome to my home page!
I'm looking forward to working with you this year as we return to full-time in-person school--if not yet to a sense of normalcy. I know that the last couple of years have been difficult for many of you, and I hope to begin this year in a spirit of patience, grace and flexibility. Please know that whatever the circumstances, I'll be doing everything I can to build a safe and supportive classroom community, push student learning, and promote fairness and equity.
Students: Click on the class that you're in on the menu to the left to find the syllabus and Google Classroom codes. As with all your classes this year, Classroom will be your go-to place for things to learn and assignments to do. Make sure you enter the code for the right class period!
Families: If you want to see what your child should be working on in my class, you can see the week at a glance by clicking on their class on the left. As far as materials, for both classes students should have a notebook (preferably graph paper for AP Econ), and something to write with. Update: AP Econ students are also encouraged to get a 1-inch binder to house their workbooks, but I also have a box of extras that students can borrow, and students don't need this on day one. Students should also bring their BISD chromebooks, with headphones, to class. We'll provide everything else.
Please contact me via email if you have any questions or concerns.
