I am new to blogging, although I have been a long-time reader and fan of blogs, both for education and personal interests.

I plan to use this to keep my classes and parents updated on things happening in class.

Looking forward to seeing you all in my classes in a few weeks! But, I won't wish away what's left of summer.  Enjoy, stay safe and see you on August 20 at the open house or August 24 on the first day of school!
