The Sky's the Limit
Life is busy. Email is a quick and convenient way to learn what your child is accomplishing in class.
I hope you enjoy the highlights from the week.
Keep the Wheels Turning
Language is a transportation machine. It gets people from where they are to the places where they've never been. It collapses the distance between an idea and an individual; it’s the highway for our thinking and the bridge between perception and truth. Words are the wheels that get us places.
As an English teacher, my goal is to educate your child about the vehicle of language and help him or her to drive the machine comfortably, confidently, and competently.
To that end, this website is designed to provide you insights into who I am as a teacher, tools for co-laboring in your child's education, and contact information to reach me with any questions. Above all, this website is a way to let you know the places your kids are going, have gone, and will go in their academic journey.
I consider it a true privilege to educate your child. It is a joy to get the wheels turning in your child's mind and a somber responsibility to keep the wheels turning in his/her life's journey.
I look forward to traveling the road ahead of us. In the words of Robert Frost:
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
- Robert Frost
