My expectations for you are very simple.
BE PROMPT - I expect that you are on time to class and ready to work when I am. (that means in your seat with your book, binder, and sharpened pencil out, ready to go)
BE POLITE AND POSITIVE – I DO NOT TOLERATE NOR APPRECIATE put-downs, name calling, or the “just kidding” humor toward your fellow students. We’re all in this together and we should treat each other with respect. You should also participate in classroom discussions and activities and listen attentively.
BE PRODUCTIVE – I expect all work to be turned in on time and fairly neat. I also expect you to do your best on everything to you do for me. If you cheat, there are serious consequences, both from me, and from the school. (Pg. 13 of your student handbook)
BE A PROBLEM SOLVER – Our universe is growing everyday. We’re required to learn new things and solve new problems daily. I don’t expect you to understand everything the first time you learn it. We don’t learn that way. If you are having problems with something, try to solve it constructively. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. I love questions, and I love students who ask questions.
