Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to my blog!  Here you will find a list of daily activities, due dates and substitute assignments for ISS/OSS/ and sick work.  I am here to help you after school on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:45 – 5:00 pm.  During that time you make come in for tutoring in Economics, complete a make up test or do test corrections from a previous test to try and improve your grade.  There will be no test retakes for Economics.  However, there will be test correction opportunities in which you can earn the value of one question back for every three that you answer correctly by looking up the answers in your notes or your textbook.  If after school does not work for you I will do my best to accommodate your needs.  The best way to reach me is by e-mail and I will be happy to respond in e-mail or by phone.
