Parents: Do NOT use the codes above. If you do, you will be registered as a student in class and get constant reminders that you have missing assignments. Instead, sign up for e-mail summaries (daily or weekly).

Guardian email summaries include online assignment information, such as missing and upcoming assignments, and announcements for upcoming quizzes, tests, etc.

TO RECEIVE SUMMARIES: E-mail me with your student name, and the e-mail address(es) that you wish to use for summaries. I will send you an invitation and then you just accept it.


This is my second year teaching at Dakota Ridge High School and my fourth teaching high school math and science in Colorado. I am honored to work with amazing students each day as we explore the challenging and intricate world of scientific discovery. I am available to students every morning during AE and after school by appointment.
