We will accept late HW but only for partial credit. You only get one extra day to make it up. After that, it will not be accepted
You will receive 8 passes per marking period to use to leave the classroom. These passes are used for lav, locker, nurse, guidance, etc. Once they are used up, you are not permitted to leave class unless for emergency. Whatever passes are left at the end of marking period become bonus points. You must have a teacher sign the pass before leaving.
daily - homework/classwork
We don’t want to see them!! Either you put them away, or we take them away, and then you get them back at the end of the day!
Important: No purses, backpacks, jackets, etc. may be kept on your desk or lap at any time. You just need your work, pencil and a calculator (sometimes) on your desk.
We will use graphing calculators (TI-84) from time to time. If you accidentally drop and break it, you will have to pay the school $100 to replace it so be careful!
If you want to pass, you have to be in class!
Frequent absences or tardies will cost you your grade. You won’t understand what’s going on. Come to school on a regular basis, get help when needed, and you’ll do fine. The key to success is keeping up with the assignments. Don’t fall behind. Trust me on this one. We will be available for extra help one day after school. NHS is also available.
I enjoy going to rock concerts. In recent years I have seen Aerosmith,
Peter Frampton, Foreigner, and Styx to name a few.
I love watching Seinfeld…..still!
I love anything in cheetah or leopard print…rugs, scarves, skirts, placemats…etc. And yes, my dog has a cheetah print jacket. Did you have to ask???
I love to crochet to reduce stress. I am currently making dog jackets and will be in a craft show this fall and will donate some of the proceeds to the Humane Society. Here is Bella sporting one of the jackets I made.
I love my family and will talk constantly about my kids – Zackary and Abby and dog Chance.
Life is short so I always try to enjoy every moment and take advantage of good opportunities. I have been fortunate enough to travel, try new things such as sky diving and swimming with sharks and even lived and taught in Puerto Rico for a short time.
