I look forward to the new year with much excitement, high expectations and lots of creative energy.  My goal is to provide a carefully designed environment for the students to: 
    •  think critically
    •  take risks
    •  ask questions
    •  be responsive to the learning community
    •  be proactive
    •  make a positive contribution
    I hope to achieve this with your support through multi-pronged approach.  I have designed a variety of assignments and projects in Geometry, Algebra, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Business & Finance, Art and Service Learning. 
    My expectations:
    All students will complete a minimum number of assignments every two weeks.
    All students will complete homework
    All students will participate in small and large group work
    All students will work independently for certain assignments/projects
    All students will engage in leadership activities

    Feel free to contact me anytime and I will definitely get back to you within a few hours.
    Alternatively, I will be happy to meet with you at anytime.
