As I have explained to my students ...Education was originally my "Plan B." Prior to teaching I was actively pursuing my "Plan A" as a Medical Service Corp Officer in the United States Army. However, long periods of time away from my family began to eat at me, and I decided it was time to use my degree in education. That was 22 years ago, and I have not looked back. To this day I also cannot believe I get paid to do a job that I love. My kids often accuse me of being a bit over zealous with my high expectations, but they know that I have walked in their shoes as a student who learns differently. With that said, I will be sending home my contact information along with instructions on how your child can gain access to their homework assignment website(www.Edmodo.com). Lastly, I want to personally thank our JICHS parents for granting me the honor and privilege to teach your adolescent during the 2013-2014 school year.
