Welcome & Classroom Information
I want to welcome you all to my website. Within you will find various materials and information that will assist you in my class. As students get used to my class, they will find this site of great use. Becoming comfortable with this site will make your searches quick and easy. Good luck and e-mail me if you have any problems or questions. With the new quarter, everything starts over and the students are on equal ground. Please use this website for assistance, but remember we are piloting a new curriculum which has its own online platform for me to assign, and grade work. The online platform has its own calander and assignments are easy to find there. All they have to do is sign into Clever (C) at the top right had corner of their screens. Select McGraw-Hill and the first item they should see is the calander with all their assignments listed. Those items are to be submitted online and I will grade and give them a response. Again, email me if there are troubles.
