So once you do know what the question actually is, you'll know what the answer means.

(Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

 Second semester, 2017, I am teaching three sections of Contemporary Literature as well as teaching AVID 11 and AVID 12. 

I am also the adviser for the Minneapolis Public Schools Marine Ecology/Scuba Club. We went diving in Bimini last summer and had a great time. We already have a boat reserved to dive in the Exumas in the Bahamas this summer. We are taking the club to a new level this year.

Katie Kerekes and I coach the Washburn Quiz Bowl team. The season offically ends in February, but you should think about joining anyway. There are "practices" every other week, just for fun! Join now maybe, but for sure join next year!!

If you wish to contact me for any reason, please do: mark.jensen@mpls.k12.mn.us. Email is the best way to reach me. You can also leave me a voicemail at 612-668-8766.

The mice will see you now.
