We are back! we made it through 2020 and the first half of 2021. Even thought we are wearing masks, it is still better than the alternative. The students learn better and have more oppurtunites if they are is school. It's been a busy year so far! New classes, new electronic text books, new students, and new expectations.As for class work, the 8th graders are busy learning the new text, electronic, and that is finally going well. It was a little bit of a task at first for all of us, but it's getting smoother. The math class is going real well, Mrs. Rasmussen, we wish her the best of luck back home in Indiana, she did a great job last year as I know Mrs. Fransen will this year. My two newest classes are Great Depression/Dust Bowl. Then 2nd semester it will be WWII. In WWII I am going to spent a little time tallking about Japan before Pearl Harbor, and Germany in Northern Africa. These are a couple of areas that seem to be overlooked. I am also going to spend a little more time on the Holocaust that I can in 8th grade. That is the purpose of these classes, to shine the light on some of the forgotten events in more details.
A couple of quick notes on a personal level, I now have two grandsons and a finally a granddaughter on the way. My son, Paul, is the father of Vinnie, William Esper Vinnie Paul the 4th to be exact, he is now 4 years old, and one and a half years ago my daugher, Meghan, blessed us with Cooper Jordan. Both are little pistols and I love them to death. My third grandchild is due Oct. 20, her name is Ella James and I can't wait to meet her.
We are busy outting the fiinishing touches on the first of out two trips to DC this year. The first is October 28, 29, and 30. This is the trip that has been rescheduled twice. Third times a charm! We will have out final meeting on Thursday October 14. 
I know this is to long, but it's been a while.
Thanks, oh and by the way I filed for my retirement which will take place in 1 and 7/8 year.
