COVID 19 ONLINE LEARNING STATEMENT:
I want you all to know how much I enjoy teaching you and how difficult it will be for me to not see you everyday. It is very important to me that you receive the best possible educational experience you can have during this Covid19 outbreak. I would ask that you remain calm and bear with me as I work to create an online experience that will enhance your learning and help you cultivate skills that will serve you well for the remainder of your education. Because this is a Concurrent Enrollment course I am planning on using Canvas as my main online platform which will require both you and I to learn some new things and cultivate some new skills. It is highly likely I will use some google resources as well, but they should link from Canvas.
Please use the Canvas link on this webpage to access classroom assignments, etc.
I would like the transition to online to be as smooth and painless as possible but I expect it will be a bumpy ride, especially at first, so please be patient and understanding.
Stay healthy and try not to panic. We are going to be just fine.
We can do this! We can do hard things!
