Greetings Pittsburg Pirates and Those who Support and Love You!

When you are given a challenge, how well you respond to that challenge reveals your character!  All of us will be challenged to make distance learning work for us as we begin a new year of high school, including your teacher.  I promise to do my very best and to try and create meaningful learning experiences for all of you.  Together, let's try to be good communicators and listen to one another so that we can always be improving as we navigate our way through this first semester.  Virtually every single one of us has aspirations to go to college and the uncertainty of life as we know it presently places even greater emphasis on trying to develop our critical thinking and writing skills.  Please give your best effort, please do not hesitate to ask for additional help, and please take advantage of this time to prepare yourself for what we all know can be a glorious future!  



It is a wise strategy for success, especially when you get to college, to take advantage of office hours so that you can get additional feedback.  While I can always be reached via Remind or Google Classroom, I will also be offering additional meeting times as we get further into the new school year.  I would like to talk about this option in class with students.  Once we decide on something concrete, I will update this page!  :)
