My Resolution for the 2019-2020 School Year

For the present school year, I resolve to become a more efficient worker who works smarter rather than harder thus leaving more time for communicating with my students and colleagues.

Chess Group

Will be having an organizational meeting on December 11th from 12:40 until 12:55 PM in the upstairs atrium.
