Welcome back to the 2012-2013 school year! I anticipate a wonderful year filled with great educational learning opportunities.
This site is a resource and tool for my students to use throughout the year. On it you will find anything from assignments, to worksheets, to resources for your studies. My website is an extension to the classroom and will be used on a regular basis by my students. Students will be required to complete some homework assignments on the web. These assignments give students the opportunity to share their thoughts and learn from each other. It is these moments where learning takes on a whole different dimension, and brings forth avenues of learning that would otherwise not be seen. As an educator, I seek these opportunities for learning and growth for my students. Technology is no longer a separate entity to education. It is the core component that drives the curriculum of my classroom.
