students who talk while I or another student is addressing the class.
students who do not follow directions
students who whine
students who stand at the door before the bell rings to leave class.

I can tell we are going
to have a
The world that you live in today!
This year, we will ALL learn!
Learning is a life long process, one that never diminishes.

It's time to step up.
My goal as a teacher is to prepare you for the next level.
Be responsible to bring learning materials.
Expect to learn everyday.
Learn from disappointments and mistakes.
It's not always going to be easy. You are going to be pushed and confronted intellectually and creatively.
This is ok.

At the end of the day, I want everyone in this classroom (students AND teacher) to be able to say that they've done these two things.

That you try your hardest in all that you do
That you conduct yourselves in a kind and respectful manner.
Who are we?
My Teaching Philosophy:
All students can learn.
Students do not have to "like" it to learn it.
Students need to be challenged.
There is a time to work and a time to play; the time in the classroom will be used to grow and learn.
Class rules...

When the bell rings...
be in your seat ready to work.

Each student will get 3 bathroom passes a 9 weeks
. Use them wisely.
Ask to leave class when there
is a transition in class.
If class is important, you need
to be in class.
• Class dismissal.......
stay in your seat until
the bell rings.
Note:Pet Peeves
• Responsibility........
know the definition
• Your responsibilities:
to listen
to learn
to know when assignments are due
to make your grade
Classroom management
in seats when bell rings-start and end of class
assignments turned in on time
respect and responsibility
listen and follow directions
put learning first

After students have had to deal with consequences, they will come to realize that they need to be accountable for their actions.
A time and a place to communicate
Before school or after school
Email My email address is on your handout
Lesson plans and homework are posted on my website
Handouts given each day are in make-up work folder
Homework may be a little different.
Edmodo... What is it?
Edmodo is essentially, a "digital classroom" for teachers, students, and parents. We currently use it to post assignments, create polls for student responses, post quizzes for students to take, and create a calendar of events and assignments. Students turn in assignments for us to view and mark. We can annotate the assignments directly to provide instant feedback.
Where we post to the students
Students can ask teachers or fellow students school-related questions
