    We have about 300 students that work in the lab every two days, as well as a handful of clubs. I am also in charge of our school yearbook, including paperwork, and help with our school website as well as our interim semester (IIW). As such, my schedule tends to be filled in advance. The most time efficient way to contact me is through email.

Course content is on ManageBac.
ManageBac is a Content Management System (CMS), originally starting out of Canada, now located in California- designed specifically for IB Schools, including IB DP and IB MYP.

I used to use Canvas, a Learning management System (LMS) used by many educational institutions around the US; including UC Berkley, the University of Texas, Brigham Young University-Hawaii, and Brown University. However, SBISD is no longer allowing us to utilize Canvas after this year, as they will be paying for a different LMS.  

What can Technology do for me?

Course Options!

Course selections have come and gone, however, you can still make schedule change requests.

So... in all the spare time I don't have, I've created some resources to try to help inform you of your options- because I think its important you have the opportunity to understand your options.
 

Information about the different Tech Classes that are or can be taught here at WAIS are included here, including where they fit in with the HB5 Endorsements for students who enter high school as of this year or later.

I've created a document about the new Endorsement options created by Texas House Bill 5, finalized and put into place last school year. It's a little pdf booklet that I've uploaded to my Google Drive.

This is a booklet I created last year to try to help some of my students. It explains a variety of things including your graduation requirements as well as IB requirements. The courses listed in it are based on the spring of 2014, so some options may have changed since then.
