     Welcome Back To School!!!

    This year I will continue in the classroom teaching two periods of honors Cambridge biology. Any coursework will be found on my Google classroom.  I will also continue to be the coordinator for our IB program here at Troy and assist with Troy Tech Magnet Program as well. It will be a busy year, but I am looking forward to a great year!

    IB students:
           Seniors: You need to update your CAS hours on Managebac and finalize your Extended Essays. The first Draft of the Extended Essay is due September 15th for me to write your counselor recommendation.  I will meet with all IB senior students and verify their course selections for exams this year. Any changes after the November 15th deadline for IB registration will incur further charges. I also expect their progress with CAS and Extended Essays to be an ongoing process, managed on Managebac.com. Final Extended Essays are due January 17th.

    Seniors: There is a MANDATORY meeting on August 16th at 6:30 pm in the lecture hall for all senior diploma candidates. If you miss the meeting, the files will be available below afterward.
    Juniors:Your MANDATORY meeting is on Sept. 20th at 6:30 pm in the lecture hall. I  hope between this meeting, your individual/small group CAS meetings with me and a group meeting in Mrs. Park's class, you will begin to feel comfortable with your CAS and Extended Essay requirements this year. 

    If there is anything you need assistance with and cannot find the information within the links to this page, the other IB pages or the Google classroom please let me know by calling or emailing me. Or simply stop by my cubby hole in the front office.
