What is Team Eagles success?
Mr. Schweighoffer is very excited to teach all of his students on Team Eagles. To be successful, students on the team must always turn in their work on time and try their best. Students on the team are afforded the opportunity for real success. Success is only real if there is a real chance for failure, and if students do not turn in their work, or try their best, they will be held accountable and will not succeed. Mr. Schweighoffer is positive that every student who sincerely tries is able to succeed in reaching all of their educational goals. He looks forward to directing his students in their work so they will succeed in the classroom and beyond.
