       This year, our school district is conintinuing to embrace 21st Century technology.  As such, we are asking that students take advantage of Remind, a free and anonymous text-messaging platform that reminds students of upcoming due dates, as well as the expanding Google technology.  Expect your student to be working with Google Classroom, Common Lit, Kahoot, Ed Puzzle, and other excellent tools to help them engage in the learning process. 
    To get into Google Classroom, you must use your school (mcvts) email address.    To join Remind, text your code to the phone number 81010.  If you want to get Remind by email, email me at hendersont@mcvts.net, and I will happily send you the directions.
    Here are the codes to use: 
     I hold an MEd, and recently completed post-graduate work with the University of San Diego and University of California, San Diego.  In the evenings, I am an adjunct professor at a local New Jersey college.  I have over 20 years working in education, and this is my 18th year with the district.  Other experiences I possess include working as a Program Manager Analyst on Wall Street, and I am a veteran of both the United States Navy and Army. 

          My spare time activities include traveling, hiking, camping, white-water rafting, and VERY amateur mountain-biking. In the winter, I am an avid participant in the the Olympic sport, curling, and enjoy occasional skiing. Other free time activities I enjoy include trail riding with a couple of NJ Jeep clubs, playing challenging strategy-based board games, and playing an active role in the SCA (an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts, skills, and traditions of pre-17th-century Europe).
