First meeting of the Business Club!

Today was the first meeting of the Business Club! It looks to be a promising year. We’ll be competing against each other in an MHS stock market throw down, go on business-related field trips as they become available, and we’ll be looking for other opportunities along the way! We’re planning to meet on the 1st …

My 3D workstation is complete!

  For the past 2 years, I wasn’t really sure of where to keep my classroom’s 3D printer. It lived on a cart in a closet and got wheeled in and out of my classroom when I needed it. Unfortunately, sometimes that meant “out of sight, out of mind.” I’d go a couple of weeks without …

MHS Curriculum Night POSTPONED

Please be aware that tonight’s MHS Curriculum Night has been postponed. A new night will be announced ASAP. We will have our Entrepreneurship clearance event at that time!

We’re having an Entrepreneurship CLEARANCE event tonight!

Yes, you read that correctly! We’re having a clearance event tonight at Curriculum Night! All items must go.

Although I’ll be in class and won’t be able to sit at the table, please pick up one of our flyers and consider attending our first Business Club meeting on 9/20 (Wednesday). All are welcome to attend! The Business Club’s mission …

Never forget.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 16 years since our nation’s most shocking tragedy. It’s even harder for me when I look out at my students today and realize that so many of them weren’t even alive when 9/11 happened. It is just another historical event to them. Talking to them about 9/11 is …

We made it!

The first week of school has come to a close and I’m still standing, quite literally! My classes have been awesome so far. It’s been great reconnecting with students from last year and seeing all of the new faces in my classroom for this semester. Overall, I think we’re back into the swing of things. …

Happy back to school week!

It’s Labor Day, the symbolic end of summer and beginning of the school year. It also marks the end of my medical leave. I haven’t taught since May 12th. I walked out of school that afternoon not knowing that I wouldn’t return for nearly 4 months. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I’ll be …

Accessibility, or a lack thereof.

As I’ve written previously, I had a fall in May and suffered a badly broken ankle and extensive ligament damage. The recovery period required me to be off of my feet for 3 months. In that time, I used both crutches and a scooter to get around. I preferred the scooter over the crutches, hands down. …

Donorschoose Goal Met!

Over the past few years, Donorschoose.org and many generous volunteers have transformed my classroom. My students participate in various classroom activities such as STEM competitions, iPad guided technologies, and BreakoutEDU challenges. My classroom is well organized and clean. We even have “unplugged” days to play board games that reinforce financial literacy skills. All of these …
