This year I will be sharing helpful information and resources (dates for college rep. visits, scholarships, college visit days, opportunities, etc.) using the app 'Remind 101.'
I have 490 students on my junior class caseload. My hope is that by using Remind 101, I'll be able to more quickly share information with you.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me by email or telephone (email is the best way to reach me). I also welcome appointments to meet with you in-person.
During the school year, my office hours are 8:00am-3:00pm Monday through Friday.
How can students meet with me? So as not to interrupt instruction, I am happy to meet with students during their student lunch, after school until 3:00pm, or with a teacher or counselor pass.
The Counseling Department is located downstairs, next to the Health/ Nurse’s Office.
