About me

About Me

  • BA in Liberal Arts from Louisiana Scholars’ College at NSU.

  • MS in Secondary Education from Northwestern State University

  • 4th Year teaching Geometry at Captain Shreve

  • Interests: Football, Video Games, Science, CSHS Drama, the Internets



  • Required

    • Writing Implements

    • Paper (binder or notebook for your convenience)

  • Recommended

    • Graph Paper (Makes your life easier for some lessons. One pack should last all year.)

    • Scientific Calculator (TI 30X IIS is my favorite)



  • Will be issued at a later date.

  • Each student is responsible for having a textbook in class every day.

  • We will likely NOT have a class set of textbooks.

My class

My Class

  • It is my job to teach Geometry as defined by the Louisiana State Comprehensive Curriculum.

  • Students are expected to be actively participating in classroom activities at all times.

  • Any behavior that interferes with my ability to provide quality education to other students in the classroom is a problem.

General expectations

General Expectations

  • I expect students to remain quiet while I am lecturing or answering student questions.

  • I expect there to be a good amount of on-task talking (and some off-task talking) while students are doing classwork and homework.

  • I expect students to help each other when they can.

  • I expect students to ask for help when they need it. I cannot help you if you sit in silence.

Food and drink

Food and Drink

  • Food and drink in the classroom should be closed in a container and put away.

  • Any open food or drink that I can detect with my five senses will be discarded. Don’t lose your lunch!



  • If you are absent from class for any reason, you should sign the log next to the door upon your return.

  • Additionally, you should bring me your admit slip for my signature.



  • If you are tardy to class for any reason, you should sign the log next to the door upon your arrival.

  • If you have an excuse, show it to me after you have signed the log.

    • NOTE: I am only required to accept tardy excuses issued by the office.



  • Homework will be assigned nearly every day that new material is introduced, and on some days that no new material is introduced.

  • Homework will generally be collected the day after it is assigned.

  • I will spend a few minutes at the beginning of class going over questions that students have from the homework.

  • All homework will be collected. NOT all homework will be graded. However, I do reserve the right to grade any homework that I collect.



  • Classwork is to be defined as any assignment given to you while you are in class.

  • Sometimes this will be due during the class period. Sometimes remaining problems will be assigned as homework.

  • It is your best interests to work as many problems as you can while you are still in the classroom.



  • Quizzes are very frequent in my class—usually about twice a week.

  • Each quiz will be scaled to be worth 25 points.

  • Most quizzes are “Pop Quizzes.”

  • Quizzes will be OPEN NOTEBOOK.

  • Calculator use is not allowed on Quizzes.



  • Comprehensive Chapter Tests will be given at the end of each chapter.

  • Tests will be scaled to be worth 100 points.

  • Calculators may be used on Chapter Tests.

  • Tests are NOT open notebook.

After school before school tutoring and make up times

After School / Before School Tutoring and Make-up Times

  • I will be available for tutoring on Wednesday Afternoon and Thursday morning.

  • These will also be the only times that you will be allowed to make-up tests and quizzes for which you were absent.

  • I can be available on other afternoons for tutoring (not make-ups) by appointment.

Academic responsibility

Academic Responsibility

  • You are ultimately responsible for your own academic performance in this class.

  • Your note-taking should be sufficient for you to perform well on quizzes.

  • You should always spend your time in class wisely. I can provide assistance on problems that you attempt in class.

  • You are personally responsible for getting make-up work and for procuring notes from days missed.

Academic honesty

Academic Honesty

  • On Quizzes, you will only be allowed to use your OWN notes that you took during class.

  • Using any restricted resource (textbook, notebook, calculator, another student) on any assignment will result of a grade of a ZERO on that assignment.
