Welcome back!  smiley Please be sure that you have ordered your vocabulary book through Varsity Books.  Freshmen should have ordered Vocabulary Workshop, Level E.  Juniors should have ordered Vocabulary Workshop, Level G.  We will begin using the books the first full week of school, so please be sure that you have ordered the vocabulary book in a timely fashion.  Thank you.

My Philosophy

Learning should be fun!  I believe strongly that while my students learn from me, I too learn from my students.  Come in with a great attitude, ready to work hard, laugh a lot, get involved in class discussions, and learn every day.
