    My name is Thomas Plitsch, and welcome to my webpage! On this site you will find important information about the three courses I am teaching this year 2018-2019: Common Core Algebra 2, Common Core Algebra 1 Regents, and Common Core Algebra L. Follow the menu on the side of the page for homework assignments, helpful links, and other class information. My contact information is above. Please feel free to contact me at any time. Email is the best and quickest way (and preferred way) to hear back from me! I am looking forward to another great school year! 
    Also, students may reach me most days during post session for extra help. I will be there every day unless there is a scheduled meeting prior that I have to attend. Also, new this year all teachers will have "Office Hours" where students can choose to come in for help. My office hours are as follows:
    Tuesday  6:55-7:25AM
    Thursday  6:55-7:25AM
    If students contact me in advance about coming in early these days, then I can prepare whatever necessary to help them. If they contact me in advance, then I am also willing to meet then any day in the morning, I just ask they let me know.

    A little more about myself! I am in my third year of teaching here at Valley Central High school, and I am originally from New Paltz, NY. I earned two undergraduate degrees from SUNY New Paltz in 2015, one being a Bachelor of Science in Adolescent Math Education, and the second a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts Spanish. Growing up in the Hudson Valley and now being able to teach here is a great experience and I enjoy it very much.
    I have many hobbies including travel, sports, and reading. This past summer I was fortunate enough to visit Hawaii for 10 days. It was an amazing experience! I visited Oahu, Maui, and Kauai. For sports,  I am a huge Yankee fan and I love going to the stadium whenever possible. I enjoy running and swimming, and plan on being a swim coach at VCHS in the future. For reading, my favorite all time book series is Harry Potter! The students will soon learn of my obsession with Harry Potter because I make references to it all the time! I also enjoy books by John Grisham. My other hobbies include the weather.
