My classroom expectations
My Classroom Expectations

  • Students will arrive at class ON time.

  • Students will arrive prepared to work (this means you will have your book, writing utensil and paper with you).

  • Show respect at all times.

  • No Pop/Juice allowed in class.

  • NO HATS allowed on in class.

Cell Phones

  • I do not want to see or hear them.

  • If any part of it is showing I will take it and turn into the office.

  • 1st offense – you can pick up after school.

  • 2nd offense – parents must show up to pick it up from the office.


  • I do not want them used in the classroom.

  • If I see them they will be taken.

Discipline policy
Discipline Policy

  • 3 tardies = step 1 and 1/2 hour detention

  • 6 tardies = step 2 and 1 hour detention

  • 7 tardies = step 3 and I follow the policy lined out in the handbook.

  • A removal from the classroom is an automatic step 2.

Grade scale

  • 90 - 100 A

  • 80 - 89.999999 B

  • 70 - 79.999999 C

  • 60 - 69.999999 D

  • 0 - 59.999999 F

  • I DO NOT round grades at all!


  • Usually an assignment is given daily. Homework will be graded daily/or turned in unless instructor notes otherwise. Randomly I will collect the assignments to review the work you should be showing.

  • Any late assignment will be graded down 50% --no excuses/no exceptions. Hand into box labeled Alg I homework.

    • Late is being here, but not turning in the assignment that is due.

    • Not turning in work the day it is due because of an excused absence is not late.

    • School sports are not an excused absence for this purpose because you know in advance you will be missing class.

Homework corrections
Homework Corrections

  • Any homework can be redone for full credit if attached to the original work except for late work which is a max of 50%. Corrections must have name and assignment on it. It is to be turned into box labeled Algebra I corrections, after it is attached to the front of the original assignment.


  • Approximately given every 3 weeks. These will be at the end of each unit.

  • A test can be retaken up until the next unit test is given conditional upon the student making arrangements with the instructor one day prior to him/her wanting to retake the test. This is also at the discretion of the instructors schedule.

  • Retakes can only be done before/after school, during lunch or during tutorial. They will not be given during regular class time.

Bonus pts on Tests

  • First semester: if you take the online practice test for each chapter, email results to me prior to 12:01 AM day of test, pass it with a 70% or higher, you will receive 5 bonus pts added to your test score.

Class participation

  • This is based on what the instructor sees the student doing/acting in class.

  • Instructor will put in the grade book on the average once every two weeks.

Your Grade

  • Your final grade is a combination of Homework, Tests and Class Participation.

  • Both ear pieces must be out and the player turned off while teacher is instructing the entire class.

  • Once the assignment/test is given the ear pieces can go in, and the player turned on.

  • The sound level must be low. If the instructor can hear it, it is way to loud.
