    I have been teaching for over 20 years and still enjoy the opportunity to read and discuss literature with students.  That requires effort and risk sometimes, which means encouraging kids to step outside of their comfort zone to grow and learn is part of my job as well.  Thinking critically is an important skill both inside the classroom and out in the world so we try to ensure that it's part of our daily practice.

    We will be using Google Classroom as a way to communicate electronic assignments.  Students can expect to have assignments given virtually as a way to keep organized, regardless of where we are working from.  Hopefully we can all help keep our classrooms open so students can learn in person!



    Google classroom will be explored early on in class but you can click here for a tutorial on how to access your classroom.  Your course codes are as follows:

     "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.  Intelligence plus character -- that is the goal of true education."  - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
