     Distance Learning Update
    Distance learning does not mean online instruction or classes. Distance learning will look very different in each district, school, department and class. Not everyone has the same access to technology and resources.  The staff at BHHS is working hard to create distance learning opportunities for all. We are in unprecedented times and this “new normal” is changing the way we view our world and the way we experience learning. This is new for educators and we are working to do the best we can – and it will continue to evolve as we continue to navigate these strange times together.

    I will be posting resources and enrichment activites on my website a couple of times of week.

    • I have office hours from 9:30-11:00am on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. On Thursdays, they are from 12:30-2:00pm
    • Rest assured the math department is working hard to problem solve issues as they arise 
    • I check my email a couple of times a day and will reply to you as soon as possible.

    Professional Biography
    After graduating from Gig Harbor High School in 1985 and from Washington State University in 1989, I was hired to teach math and science at Tumwater Middle School. In the fall of 1993, when Bush Middle School was about to open and TMS was about to get a makeover, I decided to make the move to high school. From 1993-1997, I taught mathematics at THS. Because of my exceptional high school experience in a new high school (I was in the fifth graduating class of Gig Harbor High School), I had always hoped to open a new high school. So, when BHHS opened its doors to students on 9/3/97 (my thirtieth birthday), I was ecstatic to be at BHHS and have been here ever since.
    Please realize that this website is a work in progress and is totally a product of the unique mind of Kelly McNeal. And, I reserve the right to make improvements to my course expectations - all changes will be posted here on my website.
    The Tumwater School District, including many others in the state, is unable to meet current state and federal guidelines for providing education services during our closure as we are not equipped to support equitable instructional opportunities for all students via remote learning. As a result, staff are currently not permitted to engage in activities that involve the delivery of instruction, distribution and collection of assignments, or the grading of student work.
