    Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility, and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience in this upcoming year.  However, I cannot do this without the help of you, the parents.  We are partners in the learning process.  

    I believe that parent-teacher relationships are necessary for maximum school success.  Throughout the year I will communicate through Google Classroom, my website, emails, report cards, and phone calls.  The best and quickest way you can get in contact me is via email.  Voicemails are listened to at the end of the school day, and I will do my best to return your call as soon as possible. 

    Class Expectations:

    • Be on time, on task, and prepared to learn every day.

    • Follow directions the first time they are given.

    • Be honest. Cheating in any form will not be tolerated whether it be a test, quiz, homework, etc.

    • Be responsible for your own learning and actions. Pay attention, take notes, participate in class discussions, and turn in all assignments. Over dramatic reactions or complaining will not be tolerated.

    • Respect the teacher, the classroom, other students, and yourself. Do not interrupt or disrupt the classroom.

    • TRY. ​Do your best. I will do my absolute best to prepare you to be successful, but you have to do your part as well.

     All in all, I expect the students to:

    Be Respectful           Be Responsible            Be Honest
