• Captain Chin

    My name is Captain Chin.  I joined the Marine Corps in 1978 and was enlisted until 1981.  When I graduated from University of Florida in 1983 I was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps.  I received my Bachelor Degree in Math from UF and my Masters in Math Education at Old Dominion University.  I also have a Masters in Leadership Ed. from Saint Leo University.   After being Honorably discharged from the Corps in September 1994, I taught at Webster College and CF as an Adjunct professor.  In October 1994 I was hired at DHS.  I taught math and in 1996 I started the Young Marine Program.  In 2002, I became the Dean and the AFJROTC replaced the Young Marine program.  I started Dual Enrollment and Math for College readiness in 2017-2018 after returning from College Park Elementary School.

    *  Try to get this done before 31 May.  If everyone is done by 31 May, I should post these last grades by 2 June and finalize grades.

    *  I still have 23 May grades to post on Skyward.  It will be done today (25 May) after I get some sleep.

    *  This assignment is due 23 May.

    *  I only have 1 more quiz, a set of problems and a test and you are done.

    *  Please get caught up, I will accept late work, you just need to email me so I know to access it.  I don't see late work until I check individual account so I need you to give me heads up by email.  Thanks

    *  I will post assignments due 14 May this week-end so some of you can get caught up.

    *  Good Morning.  Sorry I wasn't able to attend Caps and Gowns but I should be there 22 June.

    *  A lot of you are keeping up with the assignments but still some of you are not.

    *  Some of you who are paying attention may notice that I drop a grade for each assignmet before I post on Skyward.  For example, on A2 you have 100, 100, 80;  but I post       100 because I drop the 80.  So keep working on all the assignments and your final grade            should be great.

    *  I like that you e-mail me if you have troubles or questions.  It lets me feel like I'm in the classroom again.

    *  If anyone knows where one of my stuffed animal (little white one) is.  Please e-mail e and let me know.  Thanks.

    *  Only a couple more assignments to go.  I think it will be another set of problems, couple quizzes, and a test and we are done.  So please keep up.  Don't wait until it's all over to ask about your grades.

    *  First assignment was dropped.  I will still drop the lowest quiz at the end of the 9 weeks.
