       A good learning experience is built on a cooperative effort involving parent, child and teacher.  I promise to keep good communication skills open and expect the same from my parents and students.  My expectations for academic growth and conduct are high.  With your participation and support in and out of the classroom, we can look forward to a productive and enjoyable year together.
