Hello Students and Families!

Welcome to the 2020-2021 academic year!  Last school year we were hit with a big challenge, but I am happy to say that many of you rose to that challenge and showed that 'when the going gets tough, the tough get going!'  So here we are again beginning our year with virtual learning.  However, instead of being discouraged, I for one am feeling hopeful that as the world comes together to find a way for us to get back to our 'normal' way of socializing, learning and working, that you will continue to show everyone your strength, determination and ability as you dedicate yourselves to doing your best and working hard.  Your education is the most important resource you have whether it is in person or virtual.  I know that all of your teachers are working hard to make this experience as comfortable and user friendly as can be, but in order to make it work, we all have to try our very best and be patient.  With that, I would like to wish you all the very best for this upcoming year and to let you know that if I can help you in any way, please reach out to me.  


As we all become accustomed to our new format of learning, I feel relieved to know that our current situation has not cut us off from one another, but rather challenged us to find new ways to stay connected and to continue learning and growing.  

In order to continue to support  my students during distance learning, I have designated hours when I can be reached.  Resources will be posted here and on Clever (my page).  Of course for beginning language learners, they should continue using DuoLingo on Clever.

Wishing you all good health and happiness,

Hours :

8:35 am - to 3:15 pm - Monday - Friday
