I like my tea HOT....
I sincerely believe that EVERY student is capable of greatness and success; however, it is a team effort. A team effort means that you have to work with me. I remember being a high school student thinking, "When am I ever going to use this?" Therefore, I strive to help your child acquire the necessary skills to pass this course and enable their ability to take those skills and apply them in "real life."
So let's get to the REAL tea.....
This is not how I envisioned my first year at THEE Frederick Douglass High School. I was excited about the new journey, a new school and most importantly, the new students! I am just as disappointed as some of you about being home and not being able to interact in person. How are we going to do this?
ONE DAY AT A TIME!!!
I wish I had all the answers but the truth is, I don't. But I can promise you that I am going to do the best that I can to make this year as successful as possible. I will have several avenues for you to obtain information as needed. I will make sure there is open communication when you have questions and concerns. I will also do all that I can to make this class as interactive as possible so that you don't fall asleep on the keyboard.
There is nothing that WE can't get through together. WE have the strength that others dream of having. WE will make the best of this situation and live to tell how we did it. WE will be successful. WE will grow. And WE gone be aight!
