Welcome Back

Welcome to a brand new year!
I hope you are as excited as we are to begin this journey with you.

To my seniors, this is it! Final year, Final first day, Final math class of high school, Final hurdle between you and crossing that stage in May!  But as you finish all of these FINALS, you begin a lot of firsts as well. I am so excited that I can be part of this journey with you

To my Juniors, you are half way there, you have finished 2 years and are beginning your last 2 years of high school. you still have many firsts ahead of you as you get ready for those Final first that the seniors are experiencing.

Good Luck to all of my students as we begin this amazing school year.
