Parents and Guardians

  • A Note to Parents and Guardians


    Because a critical part of your child’s academic success involves the home connection, effective parent-teacher communication is essential. As your child’s science teacher, I look forward to working with him or her in creating an educationally challenging, enjoyable experience in my classroom. 


    Please know that I am available for extra help on Tuesday afternoons. Appointments may also be made in advance if your child cannot make the assigned extra help day. Of course, I am, likewise, available to speak with you, should you have any concerns. My email is . Please do not hesitate to contact me, just as I will do my best to keep you informed of anything that may be impeding your child’s progress in the course.


    Please keep a copy of your student’s course syllabus that was distributed on the first day of school. This is to ensure that both students and parents understand how the course will run. I have extremely high expectations for all of my students, and I ask for your help to make it happen.


    Finally, I want you to know that one of my most important goals this year is to keep the lines of communication open with you, as I value your input. No one knows your child better than you, and I respect that perspective. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns during the year.


    I'm looking forward to a wonderful, engaging and academically rewarding year!
