Dear Students,

As you know, Ms. Gjertsen will be your teacher beginning Oct. 25. I will begin my maternity leave on Nov. 1; until then, I’ll be around ISS, working on EEs and IAs and things like that.

If you need to contact Ms. Gjertsen or have questions about class, please write to:

If you need to contact me after Oct. 29, please use:  I’ll do my best to get back to you — but the timeliness all depends on the baby =)  Check back here around the end of November for a birth announcement & photo.

It has been my pleasure to be your teacher.  I know you are in good hands with Ms. Gjertsen & will continue to shine.

Sonja Saar
