This year promises to be one of high expectations and monumental achievements.  I intend to work  with students and parents alike in an effort to best prepare our future generation for the world they are entering. I have chosen to implement the proficiency model in my classroom, believing that every student can achieve - some just need more time to get there.  I expect students to be responsible for their own education and make efforts to honor the proficiency model, reassessing as needed for mastery. 
I have designed this site to connect you with sample assessments, classroom assignments/activities, useful links to assist in one's educational development, power point presentations, and the rare homework assignment.  It is updated weekly and can be accessed to monitor your child's learning.  Together with your help and their committment, we can achieve anything we believe in.  Never give up.... it all starts here!
