Edmonton Update

The world aquathlon (swim - run) championships were today in Edmonton and I was fortunate enought to win the bronze medal. I hope all is well back at slavens and I will see you on September 2nd. 

Please remember that our first cross country practice is on Tuesday morning at 7:00 am (meet in my room) and our first meet is at Washington Park a week from today (Wednesday). Make sure you are running 3 to 4timea this week so the 2-mile course. An be as enjoyable as possible. These runs are about keeping a sustainable pace for 30 min, not speed.

Homework assignment sheet

Parent letter

Dear Parents,
Please read through this letter with your student tonight (8/25), verify that your student has a homework assignment sheet, and sign the back page. Your child should return this signed letter to me tomorrow in class.

This will be my ninth year teaching 7th and 8 the grade mathematics at Slavens and my thirteenth year in DPS.  I received my Bachelors of Architecture and my teaching credential from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and my Masters of Education from Lesley University. I then worked as an architect in San Francisco and Santa Barbara for three years while my wife worked towards her law degree at the University of California at Berkeley.  Besides my interests in teaching, I also have a passion for sports. In college I played football, rugby, and ran cross country.  This year I have the exciting opportunity to race as part of the US national triathlon team in Edmonton, Canada and as a result I will be out the rest of this week.
