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.
