8th year of teaching
I taught at SLHS my 1st 2 years then moved to NJ for 3 years and finally moved back 2 years ago returning to SLHS.
About Me...
My Educational
Philosophy
My educational philosophy is the students always come first and anything I do, I do it for the benefit of the students. They are our future and it is my job as a teacher to prepare them for that future. In doing so, I feel educating means working hard with intense dedication and high expectations to motivate and encourage my students in a manner in which they will want to learn. It also means embracing differences among the students and having them learn from each other.
The teacher becomes a guide and the classroom becomes a community where the students are able to discover their own learning through the help of their peers and the teacher. This type of discovery cooperative learning allows students to become team players and critical thinkers. I believe it is very important to relate the content being taught in the classroom to real-life situations. This way the students recognize the reason for learning the content. With all of this being done, a warm classroom is formed with students who are ready to succeed.
TESTS:
Two to three tests per 6 weeks
Day before test will be review
Tests are on odd numbered days
Makeup tests must be taken in a timely manner.
Cumulative Re-test are offered on the last Wednesday of each six weeks before and after school.
It is an honor and pleasure teaching all of your kids!

Thank you for coming.
Students will have an OPTIONAL Cumulative Test to replace ONE failed test grade with maximum grade of 70.
Any student who has failed a test during the six weeks and passes the cumulative test, a grade of 70 will replace the lowest failed test grade.
If the student does not pass the cumulative test, but the grade is higher than one failing test grade, the cumulative grade will replace that test grade.
The student will have two opportunities to take the optional test, one before school and one after school and will be given before the end of the six weeks.
The test will consist of any material covered during that six weeks.
It is encouraged for the student to attend a teacher-facilitated tutorial to review the concepts/objectives that the student did not master before taking a retest.
It is REQUIRED that the student complete test corrections on a sheet of paper and have it stapled to the original test. This will be used as a ticket to take the retest.
If a student has more than one zero in the daily category, the student must complete that work before taking the retest. The daily grade will stay as a zero, but only one zero is allowed per six weeks in order to take a retest.
Final exams are not allowed to be retested.
