HomeTech Charter is pleased to introduce our new math teacher, Maxwell Hinchliff. He was born and raised in Hemet, California which is a small valley town 550 miles south of Paradise. He currently lives in Chico with his long term girlfriend. They both graduated Chico State in Spring 2022. Maxwell completed both his Bachelors of Science in Mathematics Education and his Single Subject Credential in Mathematics at Chico State. He believes that building relationships is necessary for students to become successful and responsible individuals. His belief about mathematics education can be summed up in this quote: “Mathematics ability is a function of opportunity, experience, and effort—not of innate intelligence… All students are capable of participating and achieving in mathematics, and all deserve support to achieve at the highest levels.” Whether it be big or small, his main goal in life is to have an impact on other people’s lives. This particularly holds true when working with students. He guarantees that he will put my best foot forward as an educator and as a role model in order to ensure the success of his students. Some fun facts about Maxwell are that he loves to spend time with his girlfriend, listening to music, playing video games, or watching anime. Also his favorite food is probably fried chicken or sushi. Welcome to HomeTech, Maxwell!

Danielle DiPetro-Hawkins has nominated Serenade Skinner for HomeTech’s Student of the Month. Danielle said, “Serenade has been attending Culinary Arts completely virtual this year—cooking along with the class in her own kitchen. The autonomy and preparedness that has gone into Serenade's class participation is exemplary—she reads the recipe beforehand and purchases all necessary ingredients before class. Her dishes always come out looking just as good and sometimes even better than ours! She's timely submitting her weekly assignments online, and makes an effort to find and share delicious recipes. She's an excellent baker as well as chef, and I've appreciated working with her.” Congratulations Senior Serenade Skinner! The staff at HomeTech looks forward to seeing where the future takes you Serenade! HomeTech thanks Red Lion Pizza in Magalia for supporting the success of our students!

Congratulations to 11th grader, Colby Heyrman who was nominated by one of his teachers, Martin Svec. Mr. Svec says, “Colby has made immense effort to put his academic success at the forefront. Despite numerous challenges, he has taken on a grueling course load - and he is absolutely soaring. Perhaps more important, though, is Colby's self-awareness, awareness of others, and a keen ability to reflect deeply on the world he lives in. He has a caring heart and an emboldened sense of speaking up for what is right, while respecting others and himself.” Way to go Colby! Congratulations! HomeTech thanks Red Lion Pizza in Magalia for supporting the success of our students!
