Hello Everyone,

I hope you all had a good spring break despite your current circumstances!

We will be working on Google Classroom from here on. If you cannot get on Google classroom or you don’t remember your email etc please let me know ….you can send me a text at 423-526-9226 and we will work something out.

Our priority at present is to stay healthy and safe.  I know this is a difficult time for everyone but we will get thru this. In the mean time we do need to try to use this time to increase our knowledge in our class subject.  If I can help you in any wayplease let me know …you have my email and phone number.

“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” –Albert Einstein

So use this opportunity to your advantage to have more time to study but don’t forget to take time to relax, breath deep and reflect on what is actually going on around you and how it is affecting everyone!. It is not every day that you experience a live epidemic!!!! You are making history!

Mrs. Baughcum.
