Email is preferred for communication! You may send me a message by clicking the "send email" icon under my picture or click this link:
Please make sure your Skyward email addresses are updated, as I will use the Skyward email feature to notify families of test dates, project due dates, and other classroom events.
 A blue communication card is used to inform families of their child's work habits and conduct.
I am able to make phone calls to parents and legal guardians from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM and after school from 3:40 PM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
Parent conferences with our team may be scheduled by contacting your child's advisory teacher via email and are conducted in that advisory teacher's classroom during our team conference time from 11:00 AM to Noon.

Grades are based upon major assessments (5 unit tests and major projects, 60% of grade), minor assessments (various quizzes, lab reports, small projects, 40% of grade), and are compliant with the current MIS/HPMS Grading Policy.
I use Google Classroom to manage student work in my classroom, which can be accessed via any internet-enabled device. Students will use our class iPads to access digital work, but are welcome to bring their own with parental consent.
Office Hours are "as needed" during advisory period or Monday - Thursday after school from 3:40 PM to 4:00 PM in B120.
