Expectations for ALL Students
I expect ALL students to be in the classroom and ready to go, on time. I expect them to be ready to learn about what it is that I have for them to learn about, not the latest gossip from their friends. I expect each student to treat each other as well as themselves with RESPECT, DIGNITY and INTEGRITY. I expect students to be responsible for their own actions. For example: If a student does not get their notes completed because they were too busy talking or working on something else, they are expected to get notes from someone else without disrupting anyone else. I expect that student to also learn from their mistake and take notes when they are supposed to be doing just that.
If the student cannot get their notes done because I am moving through them quickly, I expect them to make time after notes are over to ask myself or another student for the notes that they missed. This is the student being responsible. I DO NOT give extra credit unless under special circumstances as determined by me. I expect students to put forth their best efforts at all times. If they are unable to do so for any reason, I expect them to let me know this prior to class starting so that I may be able to help them reach these expectations.
There are numerous other expectations that are expected of my students; however most of them, along with these are common sense. If a student has any questions or concerns about my expectations, they are always able to talk with me about them. As a High School teacher, I hold my students to a higher level of accountability because I feel that there is not any better way to teach them the way of higher education (i.e. College and the real working world) than to hold them RESPONSIBLE and ACCOUNTABLE for their actions in regards to these standards.
