    About Me
    I am originally from Lolo, Montana.  I've been with my wife for almost twenty years and have three boys.  I went to high school at Big Sky High in Missoula and then attended school at UM in Missoula.  I've worked in the Alaskan fishing fleet, as a chemical engineer, as an ESL teacher in Chile, and for Verizon Wireless.  I decided to change careers and started teaching Spanish twelve years ago.  I still can't believe they pay me to do this!
    Duolingo is an excellent, easy thing to help you learn Spanish.  Best practices for using Duolingo include: 1)turn up the volume so you can hear it  2)speak when prompted  3)don't test out.  
    Google Classroom
    This is the officially-supported EHPS virtual classroom... it is the single place for students and parents to track assignments, quizzes, and class activities.  Parents, would you like access to your student's Google Classrooms?  Please email me and I'll add you.    
    Student Grades and Assignments
    Student still grades and assignments are all available in Powerschool. Parents need a username (usually a number) and password. If you don't have these, please contact the office.  
    Google Classroom grades may not be accurate as I may weight different assignments differently.  For example, students may play a game that is worth ten points.  The game may show up in Google Classroom as 100 points.  In this example Powerschool is the accurate score.
    If your student is missing a quiz or assignment, I generally allow retakes and I accept late work.     
    Sadly we do not have software that automatically updates student grades in Powerschool.  Even automated assignments must be manually entered by a teacher.  If you make up a missing or late assignment and don't see it in Powerschool, please email me so that I can update the Powerschool gradebook.
