    • Be Respectful to others and classroom equipment!

      • If I deem you were disrespectful to another student including calling them names, fighting, etc. I will send you to the office.

      • Respect also includes the classroom equipment. DO NOT write on the desks/tables or cause damage to any equipment. That will automatically get you sent to the office!

    Expectations Continued…


    I am a huge proponent of RESPECT! I will expect to be treated with respect by you and in return I will treat you with respect. Good rule for you to remember, it’s best to respond with a “yes sir” or “no sir.”

    The following are ways to disrespect me:

    Call me “Dude, Bro, Man.”

    Raising your voice at me.

    Lie to me! I will catch you!

    Classroom procedures
    Classroom Procedures

    • When you enter my room, you need to check the side table for a warm up activity. There may not be one there every day but most of the time there will be.

    • Also, check the board for instructions and to understand what your lesson is for the day.

    • Come prepared. I am not a Wal-Mart. I will not supply you with materials such as pencils and erasers.

    • Any assignment not finished during class time will become homework.

    • If class starts on time there will be very few instances where we can’t finish our work.

    • Homework:

      • I rarely give homework, however, I will expect any homework that is assigned to be turned in on time.

    Failed assignments extra credit
    Failed Assignments/Extra Credit

    • If you failed an assignment, quiz, or test there will be chances to increase your grade.

    • I will keep a drawer specifically for EXTRA CREDIT.

      • Extra credit assignments can replace an assignment grade completely.

      • Extra credit turned in for a quiz or test will add points to your grade up to a 70.

    You have 4 minutes between classes so use that time wisely.

    I will judge if it’s a true emergency.

    Electronics technology

    • We will use technology in the classroom periodically, when its appropriate.

    • Don’t let me catch you using your phone in class without my permission. I WILL TAKE IT!
