bathroom passes
Bathroom Passes

Every student who has an emergency and absolutely needs to go to the rest room needs to have their restroom passes. These are given to you at the beginning of school and are to be kept in your binder at all times. If you do not have your passes DO NOT ask to be allowed to leave the room.

When you leave the room you need to sign out in designated area.

Sign out using full name, date, time and destination. Failure to do so will result in loss of privileges.

Sign in with correct time

Teacher will initial your pass each time you leave the room. Only 5 passes per 9 weeks. No rollovers.


Be sure there are NO books on the floor.

Be sure there is no trash or any items left on the floor or in the aisles.

Class is not dismissed until I say you may go and all is put away and everyone is in his/her seat.

The bell is a reminder that class is over, but the teacher dismisses.

Put things away about a minute before the bell.

Sit quietly and wait for last minute instructions.

Feel free to remind teacher a minute before the bell so that we may be ready.


All tardies will be issued through the attendance office via an electronic tardy system.

If you are not inside the classroom when the bell rings, you will be considered tardy and need to report to the attendance office for a tardy slip.

Teachers will be closing their doors at the tardy bell and you will not be admitted without a pass. Please hurry to class!

dress code is enforced
Dress Code is enforced

No tube tops, halters, camisoles, or tops with spaghetti straps.

Dresses, skirts, and shorts must be at least fingertip length in the front and back when the student is standing or walking.

May not wear tops which are low-cut, revealing, or excessively tight. Inappropriate clothing may NOT be corrected by covering with a sweater or jacket.

Piercings are allowed only on the ears. Coverings intended to disguise or conceal other body piercing are not permitted.


Expectations for Academics

Everything we do, the way we behave all lead back to the results we will get academically.

Time on task is the foundation of academics.

Once time is lost, it is gone forever. It can not be recuperated.


I anticipate we will get through chapter 4 by Christmas break.

We will have a quiz on vocabulary the class period after the vocabulary has been introduced. Quizzes are announced in advance. So when you are introduced to new vocabulary, expect to be quizzed on it next class period.

The same applies to the dialogs that are introduced and practiced in class.

instructional walks
Instructional Walks

We will go out for walks

These are to be instructional walks and are to be used as a fun way to relax and learn Spanish. You will be expected to use Spanish conversations or repeat all the things the teacher or another student may be saying. Sometimes you will have a quiz over material covered while on these instructional walks.

During lectures

Listen and take notes- lots of notes

On many occasions you will be allowed to use your notes on quizzes and for writing tests. If you are allowed to use your notes and you don’t have them, then you are not prepared. If you have problems taking notes, see me and we can make a plan. You will not be allowed to use someone else’s notes.

if you are concerned about your grade
If you are concerned about your grade…

If at any time your grade is not accurate or think I may have overlooked something, please talk to me about it.

If you are concerned about your average see me. Don’t do anything foolish like cheat or copy from someone else.

will i be treated fairly
Will I be treated fairly?

You will always be treated fairly. If at anytime you feel otherwise, please see me.

Students are also treated on an individual basis at times. This is not to be unfair in anyway. Sometimes students have special needs and I as a teacher want everyone to be successful in my class.

academic integrity and honesty
Academic Integrity and Honesty

Sometimes students may be tempted to cheat if they are not prepared or feel there is unfairness to some degree.

Cheating is never the answer and should never be a solution for situations such as not being prepared, not having done an assignment, not understanding something, wanting a higher grade than merited, etc.


Rather than cheating when you don’t understand something or are unprepared, talk to me and let’s come up with a better solution. Never resort to cheating just to make a higher grade. This will only lead you into self-deception and loss of integrity.

If you need to make a higher grade and you are currently struggling don’t despair and turn to cheating or dishonesty- instead see me for solutions.

i do not understand what do i do
I do not understand, what do I do?

If while I am explaining something you do not understand, write down your question so that when I am through talking, I can answer it.


When I want your attention, I will generally say, “atencionpor favor” or “escuchen”. At that time all eyes on me.

I will use lots of gestures to get my point across.

Sooo, when I am talking you are looking at me and listening.

Do not wait for translations because that is why I use gestures, pictures, etc.
