I am excited to be your teacher this year! It is an honor to be able support your development as a scholar and I look forward to witnessing the paths you create toward your goals.We will be using technology extensively in our classroom to learn, collaborate, and communicate. Visit my class website www.msalbasclass.com to get a preview of what we will be learning throughout the school year. This webpage was created with the intention of facilitating communication between our classroom community. On this website you will find most of what you need to be successful in my class. Entire units are posted including: notes, handouts, reading, outside links, study guides and more! We will also be utilizing our Google Classroom and Twitter Feed@AlbasClassGGHS to ask questions and comment on class material or the class. Of course, nothing beats real time person to person conversations. Please make time to ask for individual help. I am here to support you and ensure that students are provided with individual support required for academic success.
