I enjoy technology and believe that it can be an integral part of a student's learning. I actively use Remind 101 on a weekly basis, so if you haven't already, please subscribe to our classroom texts (see sub page). I will send out homework and quiz reminders.

Previous students will tell you, it's a non-negotiable.
