2nd Semester Students:
On Tuesday we will be going over our syllabus and I will be introducing the "Getting to Know You Project"
It will be a short 5 minute Google Slides presentation that allows me to get to know you. You all will turn this in on Friday on Google Classroom. I will provide the Google Classroom Codes tomorrow in class.
I am excited to get started with my 4th year at SWHS and 11th in education. My wife (Mandi) and I have two sons, Hamilton (8) and Harrison (5). They both attend Rich Pond Elementary. Hamilton will be entering 3rd grade and Harrison will be in Kindergarten. You will see my children daily, they ride to school with me and attend Spartan Academy. My family and I not only attend Rich Pond, and work at SWHS, but we also live in the community, we currently live in Hunter's Crossing and love living on the South Side. I will be offering one section of U.S. History, two sections of American X during the Fall Semester. During the Spring Semester I will offer two sections of U.S. History and one section of Geography and Civics.
This year at SWHS we are encouraging students to bring their own devices from home, wether that be a phone, iPad or Chromebook. With trying to re-open school safely in a world with COVID-19, we feel that it is important that we try to limit the sharing of materials such as devices. The use and availability of computers at SWHS will be very limited during the 2020-2021 school year. Students will be responsible for their own device and will still be held to the same standard of use, that they would have had if it were a SWHS or WCPS device.
I will be using Google Classroom to upload and grade many of our assignments during the semester. While Google Classroom will show grades for individual assignments, it may not have all grades for the semester. Students and parents will need to look to Infinite Campus for official grades during the semester. It is my goal to have up-to-date grades in Infinite Campus weekly and the grade on Friday afternoon after 3pm will be their current grade.
I am also an assistant coach with the SWHS Baseball team.
I sponsor the following clubs at SWHS:
TARS (Teenage Republicans)
