To students and parents:
I know this year is an unusual one. I hope that soon, we all can meet in the non-virtual classroom – SAFELY. This year, we will start all classes with a syllabus for the “virtual” year, and once we can transition to hybrid and in – class time there will be an update to reflect the newer expectations.
A little bit of academic background on me: I teach electronics, introduction to (engineering) design, computer science, and the robotics class here at Pittsburg High. I also have a background in math as well. I am also the CTE Department chair, so sometimes my "afterschool" time is extremely limited due to meeting commitments and robotics.
For my non-school related pursuits, most of those are cancelled, right now, but:
1. I am pursuing a Master's degree
2. I am also a professional performer (dancing and historical re-enactment), normally at Dicken's Fair (based at the cow palace, SF/Daly City)
3. I am owned by 2 adorable cats - we all know dogs have owners and cats have staff. :)
4. I am an active member of a maker!space called Obtainium Works, which is best known for building an amazing 3 story Victorian house on wheels for Burning Man.
Head over to your google classroom to make sure your attendance is counted, see the current work due, and find out what slideshows / activities / etc you need to be focused on right now!
