Class Do's and Procedures
CLASS RULES AND PROCEDURES
1. Be kind to one another.
2. Be patient.
3. Be understanding
4. Be on time.
5. Be honest.
What you can expect from me:
1. Understanding - if you have a concern, please come to me. I will do my best to discuss the situation with you and to try to resolve your problem.
2. Patience - I am a patient person (most of the time); however, I will not be so patient if you don't at least try something.
3. Enthusiasm - I love the subject that I teach; no, really, I do! I love to help young writers develop their craft; I love teaching literature, helping you to see how it connects all of us - beyond differences and even throughout time. I love words--where they come from, their history, etc.
My door is always open to you. I arrive at school very early, and unless I have a meeting I will be available to you after school. I am also in my room during my lunch period and my planning period. I am here to help you in any manner that I can.
In case of a fire drill: Leave everything at your desk; quietly file out of the door, turn to the left and go straight through the outside doors. Head for the grass across the parking lot; please stay together.
In the event of a lock down: Quietly head to the very back of the classroom and sit against the back wall. Please remain silent.
