A little about Mr. P.…
  • Family / Lives in Rowan area
  • George Junior, Vision Quest
  • My number one goal is for your child to WANT to come to school!
  • “No one cares what you know, until they know you care.”
  • Own your mistakes and move on. “Would you say or do that with your parents standing right next to you?”
  • I put “the person” first… (confusion, illness, stress, etc.)
  • Everyday is a chance to be different and be better. (Raccoons) “People give up what they want most, for what they want most right now.”
homework projects
  • Homework: not graded, purpose of HW is to recall and apply learning (not busywork)
  • Responsibility: At home…no fights over homework. “Don’t do it…YOU can tell Mr. P. it’s not done.”
  • Projects: Some typing or research at home. 98% will be in class. (Geo-towns)
  • If you are seeing excessive amounts of HW…good indicator that student is wasting time.
  • Batter-up Chart… Have to work hard to “strike out”.
