Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year.  I hope you have read your summer reading as you can count on a quiz on the first day. 

About me:

I have taught at the Magnet for 20 years, yes, longer than you have been alive.

I love dogs and this is Xena pictured below.

 My favorite student excuses for being late - "The line was too long at McDonalds."
  "I was temporarily abducted by aliens."

Some of my favorite student comments: 
" Don't double-click, Mrs. Hurt, that's so 2000."
" If you were reincarnated as a dog, you'd definitely be a bloodhound"

Handouts and announcements for your specific class will be on Google Classroom.  See me for the class number.
