Preparing students for the world of the 21st Century...

Now entering into my  eighteenth year of teaching, my mission is to equip students with skills and knowledge that they will need to be successful in the technological age of the 21st century, no matter where their career path may take them. Through compelling literature and reflective writing, I pledge to open my students' eyes to the world around them and arm them with the knowledge and skills necessary to impact lives across the street and around the world. This I believe.
