    I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about working with your child this year. My name is
     Tami Peters and I am the Principles of Information and Technology and College Ready Instructor for the 2014-2015 school year. Although I've been teaching for over 15 years, this is my 2nd year teaching at North Forest and I absolutely love it! I care deeply about each of my students. I believe students can grow and develop by examining the issues we cover in class. The main goal of my course is for each student to expand their knowledge through writing, literacy, and technology.

    I am excited about working with your child. I welcome questions or comments, and I'm looking forward to a great year!
