Unexpected Time Off Update
Hello, students! Updated 4/2/2020
I knew the possibility of what happened yesterday was always on the table, but held out hope to the bitter end that I might be able to see you all in person again before the end of the school year. I am trying to shift my focus to the fact that I was blessed to have had the opportunity to know you and teach you in person for as long as I did. I hope you are all finding ways to make this time bearable. At least you're all getting caught up on your sleep!
I've posted some things on my Precalculus page to help answer and address some of the concerns I've been receiving from you.
Again, please let me know if you have further questions!
Hi, friends. Updated 3/25/2020
I hope you've been able to find ways to find joy during this strange and uncertain time as well as catch up on your sleep! I miss you guys and can't wait to see your faces again.
Yesterday the Math Department met via Zoom and put together some SAT prep resources for you to practice over the next two weeks. We wanted to provide you with something that could help keep your brains in "math shape," while also potentially preparing you for the SAT or other college math placement tests. These problems are optional, but definitely worth taking a look at. A link to the 4 sets of problems is posted below. If you need a printed copy, you can pick on up at school in the South parking lot weekdays during lunch distribution from 11:30 - 1:00. The idea right now is to resume teaching new content April 7th, whatever that may look like.
Please email me with your questions or concerns. This is brand new territory for all of us, so we're doing our best to navigate as gracefully as possible. I'll update my website when I learn or hear any new information.
