Welcome Back

Hello and welcome to the 2009-2010 school year. You have found your way to our class blog so you are undoubtedly a determined and motivated individual. If you are reading this then I predict you will do very well in this course and learn skills and content that will help you to be successful far beyond high school.

To the right you will find a section headed START HERE. Go there now to familiarize yourself with our course syllabus, sign up for a g-mail account (that is as close as you can get to your real name) and then complete the student data form for me.

A note about g-mail accounts. We will be using several Google tools this year. Though you can have a google account with another e-mail address, my experience has been that students who do that often experience problems with their accounts. I suggest you get a g-mail account.

And, because someday very soon you will be putting your e-mail address on college applications, job applications, rental applications, car loan applications etc., it would be best if you picked a user name as close as possible to your real name. This makes you look professional and it helps me to know who you are when you send me something too.

We are going to have a great year.
