I expect students to do their personal best and to celebrate individual successes. Students are expected to be active in class discussions. In order to receive full credit for class and home assignments, work must be completed on time. Satisfactory late work will only be given half credit, so it is essential that students have minimal late assignments. Students are expected to respect one another and any adult that is involved in the classroom. Disrespectful behavior towards any person in the classroom is not tolerated. Each child in my classroom will experience the right to express their ideas in a safe and welcoming environment.
