"Work Hard, Be Nice. It is that simple."

"Education is not the learning of facts,but the training of the mind to think" - Albert Einstein

I am looking forward to an exciting year building our THINKING CLASSROOM together. This will help us have a deeper understanding of the "why" behind the Algebra and Geometry content we learn to apply, rather than just "mimicking" what we have been shown to do.
