Welcome to the new home page

It’s a new school year, so it’s time for a facelift for The old page served well for two years, but it’s time to move on to something a little more versatile and modern.

I’m still tweaking the theme and design of this site, so please be patient. It’s fully functional, with a lot of new features and expandability. Everything from the old page is here, so look around if you can’t find something.

As always, let me know what you think about the changes and remember that I can always use help.
