As a lifelong learner and an educator, I value the experiences I get to have with the many people I meet, learn with, and help to learn. I believe that the skills we need to be effective learners are ones we practice and sharpen our whole lives, and the better we are at learning, the more doors that are open to us.

I hope you find what you need on my website. If you don't find what you need, or have suggestions for improving my website, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Happy Learning!
Mrs. Rykse

  • Stick with It! Many of you are starting to think about summer and wish it was already here. Remember that wishing something would happen faster won't make it happen any faster. Instead, stick with your focus on learning in school--some of the coolest concepts in Geometry are still to come! By focusing on the here and now, time will seem to pass faster, and you'll arrive at summer before you know it!
