Parents and Guardians,

I believe in strong parent/teacher communication. This year I want to send newsletters to keep everyone in the know. Please send an email to: with your name and your child’s name and block. Always feel free to email me with questions, comments or concerns.

I also plan to celebrate my students throughout the year. I will work hard to keep you updated on any events happening this year.



I believe in open communication between teacher and student, as well. As long as there is honesty and trust between us, we are guaranteed a productive year ahead of us. In our classroom, we will work with SWAG- Success, Willpower, Attitude and Goals and this year will be LIT- Learner Focused, Instructionally Intriguing and Teacher Facilitated!

Everyone has choices, and I know sometimes we make choices without thinking or following others, but if we stay truthful and learn from our mistakes, we can easily move forward. I start every relationship with trust and respect and we can even have a personal handshake if you would like, just let me know. J You have to prove that you can be trusted to make the right choices in order to keep my trust, but I will always show you respect and I will always make choices that benefit your learning in my science class.
