Winter Break is Here!

I hope everyone has a safe, relaxing, and wonderful holiday season!

Please remember that during our break, school is still open. You won't have new assignments to complete each day, but it's the perfect time to catch up on some old ones. I will check my Kmail over the break, so please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions, or if there's something I can help you with.

All my best to you and yours!

December Starbucks Gift Card Drawing

Each time you came to class in December your name was entered into a drawing for a $5 Starbucks gift card. I used a random raffle generator app to make the selection.

Our lucky winners are...

Foundations II: Jesse

ENG 402: Kyle

Congratulations to our winners! I'll be mailing your gift cards right away.

Keep coming to class to be entered in our January drawing. Next time you could have a reason to check the mail!


I sent a Kmail to each student who sent me a goal at the beginning of the year. I included your goal, just as you worded it, and asked you to send a reflection on your progress back to me. If you haven't done this already, please make sure you do. It's important to set goals, check on your progress, and make any modifications you need in order to be successful. Once I receive your reflection, I add 5 extra credit points to the gradebook, so make sure you take the time to respond today!

Attendance Incentive

It's really important for all students to attend our Class Connect sessions each Monday. Our data shows students who attend class each week are more likely to pass and be highly successful in their courses. I want all of us to bask in success, so I'm now offering an attendance incentive.

Each time you come to our Monday Class Connect session you'll receive course credit as well as an entry into our monthly $5 Starbucks gift card drawing. What a deal! You'll engage with the class, dive into content, earn credit at the same time, and potentially win a gift card --- it doesn't get much better than that!

I look forward to seeing you all there!
