Dear Sophomores and Parents,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! It is going to be a fun year collaborating
with each other, learning new skills you will use, and reading entertaining and
thought-provoking literature that both you and I choose.
My husband Carlo and I welcomed our little girl, Celia, on August 8th, and I will
be on maternity leave until January 30th. You will be in excellent hands with
Mrs. Amy Cheney- Seymour until that time. She has a great deal of teaching
experience including in her own English and history classroom at
National Sports Academy.
I wish you all a strong start to the school year, and I look forward to getting to
know you and working with you when I return. Keep an open mind, work
hard and remember that when you feel challenged by the work and are
feeling stuck, that is when the real learning occurs.
All the best,
