 Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!
 
“Let’s Taco ‘bout learning!”  is our classroom theme this year!  Either write things worth reading or do things worth the writing!  We will talk (taco) how about positive thinking is linked to success in and outside the classroom.  Watch your thoughts, they become words.  Watch your words, they become actions.  Watch  your actions, they become habits.  Watch your habits, they become character!  Watch your character, it becomes your DESTINY! 
 
Taking risks can lead to the best things in life.  Rich, authentic learning experiences happen in this classroom, which promotes healthy risk-taking in developing more ASL, English (writing and reading), and interpersonal skills.  When students are allowed to make mistakes to learn from them, they are able to soar as high as they can go.  
 
Stop by and visit our classroom.  Be forewarned - you may be surprised to find what we are doing.   You may find us making a DNA model or petting rabbits.   We might be quoting Shakespeare or spouting magic words from one of the Harry Potter books.  We might be on a poetry walk or sharing our written ghost stories while eating S'mores.   Whatever it is we are doing, you can be assured we are learning as we take risks to learn even more.  
 
If you need to reach me, feel free to leave a message at the high school office with your name (and student’s name, if applicable), email address, and phone number.   
 
Let’s have a GREAT year! 
Ms. Judi Ann
