Tim Fullen » Welcome


Dear Parents or Guardians,

     With this letter I would like to introduce myself as your child’s new U.S. History teacher. Hopefully this academic term will be an exciting one for both the students and me. I have planned numerous activities for the upcoming semester to not only make class fun but also educational. Success will ultimately lie with not only me, but with the student and you. My expectations are very high and average will not cut it.

     If you have any questions, or if any issues arise, please contact me at Bon Lin Middle School or by email at . I will be glad to speak with you at any time. I look forward to working with your child this year. I also anticipate meeting you and learning how I might be of assistance to you and your child.


Mr. Fullen
