Welcome.  I look forward to a very productive and successful year together at Stokes Early College High School.  The core items that will help your student to succeed the most in the classroom are hard work, dedication, commitment, consistency, and a little humor doesn’t hurt.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at the school during my planning period from 10:00 to 11:00 am.  I can also be reached through my school email:
