WELCOME NOTE!
I am so excited to be at Athens High School and especially excited to have you in class. I am looking forward to getting to
know each and every one of you this semester as I share my love of technology. Technology is important, pervasive and
ever-changing. I believe that every student has the quality and capability to be successful, therefore I am committed to
providing an encouraging, nurturing, safe and stimulating environment to educate, motivate and influence you to reach
your utmost potential. I feel that Career and Technical Education is important as it provides stepping stones for
occupational preparation for the pursuit of a two year, four year or vocational degree. My goal is to provide the tools needed
to aide in your success in the classroom as well as for after graduation when you enter the world of work.
Lets get ready for a great semester!
