LAST BLOG POST OF THE YEAR

As I mentioned in class, I'm leaving Rocky Top and moving with my family to Massachusetts this summer. I don't know when I'll lose access to my Adams 12 email address so here's my personal email address you can use to stay in touch:

eric.fengler@gmail.com

I'd love to hear how things are going for you over the summer, next year, and beyond! I enjoyed being your teacher so much this year and wish all of you the best of luck. All I ask is that you NOT spam me with junk email. Unless you're sending me animal memes. Those are okay.

Our virtual reality plan has failed - the wifi network still can't support the app we're using. 😩

Today, all classes will complete a short quiz on saving and investing money. If you finish early, go to this website and help me test out some more online economics games:
