      Welcome to my class!   I look forward to a great year!   Parents, please feel free to call or email me at any time.   I am able to respond more quickly to email than by my school phone number, but either way I will get back with you as soon as I can!   It is VERY IMPORTANT that your child stays caught up and does not get behind.    If they start having problems it is critical that they come in for tutorials or get help immediately.    Getting behind snowballs and it is very hard to catch up. 

       

      Students are expected to keep their papers in an organizer of some sort and bring them to class each day.  For Algebra II Honors we will use the textbook.   I keep a class set in my room and students will check one out to keep at home for their use outside of my room.  They may also access the book online using their school ID and password at PearsonTexas.com.

       

       

      Students are required to take notes daily.
