Respect is our highest expectation!
For all of my classes, I emphasize the importance of respect. Without respect for one another and the support of those around us, there is not opportunity for a productive, comfortable environment. Because of that, we expect each other to be respectful and mindful of one another in and out of class.
It is expected to be at school with all materials needed for the typical school day.
If you do not have your materials, I usually have extras for you to borrow.
Pens, pencils, and paper are always available for student use in my classes. At times that require more materials, I will typically have a few extra notebooks, binders, highlighters, or other supplies.
If students are not meeting the classroom expectations of being respectful and trying their hardest, then contact home to parents/guardians will follow.
I love having enthusiastic and energetic classrooms with a lot of conversation, but we must all keep the focus of the conversation to the academic topic at-hand.
