Welcome to a fantastic year at Kate Bond Middle School - home of the Kodiaks. I am excited about the 2015-2016 school year! What happens in this class will affect your life in the future. Your time will be well spent. I have high expectations of my students and will push each of you to achieve academic excellence. The failure of any of my students is not an option. You will be exposed to a plethora of academic experiences which will prepare you not only for high school, but also for the professional/collegiate worlds that are awaiting you. Consequently, I will place high demands on each of you in an effort to prepare you for each of these worlds. You will be exhausted from the rigorous assignments and higher order thinking activities that will be facilitated daily. But, I promise to make every moment count. It is my pledge to provide you with the most enriching educational experience.
