Hello and welcome! I'm looking forward to working with you this year.  I can't wait to see the art that you create.  


Please use the Microsoft Teams login information that you were given if you picked up a district laptop, and the class schedule to know when we are meeting.  Microsoft Teams is a part of Microsoft Office.  Log-on at the beginning of every period I have with you, except for advisory.  I have posted a couple links to videos below to help you with your computer.  If they don't help you, please either call technology at (925)779-7676. or email them at or  Additionally, if you need to get ahold of me, my email is  Hope to see you soon!
