• "The secret of education lies in respecting the pupil."

      by Ralph Waldo Emerson


    Dear Student and Parent,

    I believe that all students can learn Engineering and they have the capacity to become technically

    competent and confident when provided a rigorous and challenging engineering program supported

    by high expectations.  Engineering is an important course for further study and practice in real life

    careers and applications in business, industry, government, trade and services, technical, vocational

    and other professional pursuits. I look forward to working with you!

    Together, we can do engineering with CLASS!  

    Sincerely, Mrs. Blaske

    Character is essential.

    "Watch your thoughts, for they become words.

    Watch your words, for they become actions.

    Watch your actions, for they become habits.

    Watch your habits, for they become character.

    Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny."


    Leadership is helpful.
    I believe that a strong leader is a good listener.
    Good listening skills are important
    in individual work and in cooperative groups.
    "Effective leaders help others to
    understand the necessity of change and to
    accept a common vision of the desired
    outcome." (John Kotter)

    Attitude is very important.
    A positive attitude supports learning. Persist and
    persevere when faced with challenges.
    Your goal is mastery and proficiency through
    daily practice.
    "Attitude is a little thing that
    makes a big difference." (Winston Churchill)

    Scholarship is infinite. 
    "True scholarship consists in knowing not
    what things exist, but what they mean; it is
    not memory but judgment." (James Russell Lowell) 

    Service is priceless.
    As you work with other students in this class,
    you will find that you are also helping yourself.
    "The best way to find yourself is to lose
    yourself in the service of others." (Mahatma Gandhi)
