• Dear students and your respective adults,

    It has been an absolute pleasure serving as your drafting teacher these past three years. I am but only an email away for future references, project reviews, and portfolio critiques. If you happen upon me in public and the area around my eyes appear a bit damp, assuredly it is allergies and not the deep sentiment I feel for becoming all the better after experiencing the priviledge of being called your teacher. Have a wonderful summer!

    ~ Ms. Elena Michel
