This is my second year teaching. I substituted in Utah and Colorado before teaching at Horizon. I am teaching Math 1/Math 2 Blocks and Intro to Computer Science this year. I am also the supervisor for Horizon's Robotics Club.
I graduated from Horizon in 2008 so Horizon and Adams 12 are home to me. I went to Brigham Young University-Provo and graduated there in 2016.
I enjoy mathematics. I’ve been working on a math problem for five years (Math can take patience and persistence). I also enjoy learning about other languages and cultures. I lived in the Philippines for two years. I speak Tagalog fluently and am learning German and Turkish. I also enjoy reading and baking.
You can contact me through the online form or at extension 4493. I am available before/after school and during periods 1/5/6 for extra help. Feel free to explore my classroom site: https://sites.google.com/adams12.org/acspreng/ for links to Remind, Schoology, other resources, and for information concerning Horizon's Robotics Club.
REMOTE LEARNING INFORMATION
This letter is to share information about how online learning in my Math 2 Block and Intro to Computer Science classes will happen. If at any time you are concerned or scared or have questions, please send me an email or send a Remind text and I will help as much as I can. All assignments and notes will be posted in Google Classroom (Math) or in Schoology (CS). Everything will be posted by 7:15 am Monday and due by 11:59 pm Sunday.

Remind text to 81010 the following message:
2nd hour: @sprengcs
3rd/4th hour: @spreng34
7th/8th hour: @spreng78
Attendance will be taken at the end of each week. Each student must submit some work during the week, to be counted as present. For instance, if an assignment is given in Google Classroom or in Schoology, then that must be submitted and that will show that a student is attending their class. Also, if a student is doing their assignments in Clever (Math) or writing the programs in Python and uploading to Schoology (CS) then this will also show that the student is attending class.
Assignments and Check-ins: small chunks of assignments will be given each week. These will be collected online and graded. Once collected, I will put these assignments into Infinite Campus.
Exams/Quizzes: These also will be given online. They will be included in your summative grade. These will be assigned in Clever or Schoology.
Office hours will be held at the following times. I was excited to work with Zoom, but due to reports of inappropriate use, I’m going to stay with Remind texts, email, and Google hangouts for the time being. The times below align with the school’s schedule.
