• Welcome to my Teacher Site.  I am pleased to again be teacher here at MCHS for my 38th year!  It will be a different year in many ways as we have transitioned back to full in-person school.  The last year and a half has been one of distractions and hardships for many.  There are gaps in the education of our youth and it will be a challenge for all to make up these gaps. Students should expect that we will again be working hard to acheive all that they are capable of. It will not be easy, but I expect most to succeed.  Good Luck to All and Have a Great Year!
