Hello!
Welcome to Helena High School. I have had the privilege of teaching here for the last 25 years. This year I am teaching 2 sections of College Algebra 1st semester and Statistics 2nd semester. Students have the opportunity to take either or both semesters for dual credit through Helena College. I am also teaching 2 sections of Math 105, which can also be taken for dual credit. I also have 1 section of Algebra 2. I am looking forward to a great year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
