Hello, everyone!

Welcome to my home page!  I teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade ELAR. My mission is for all students to be engaged in my classroom also, to be able to express themselves through writing.  I am all about showing grace to my students and helping them learn values that will last a lifetime!

6th, 7th, & 8th Grade ELAR Syllabus
Classroom Rules:
  These rules are designed to help the classroom run more smoothly and efficiently so that everyone will have the opportunity to learn.  
1.  Be on time and in your seat ready for class to begin.
2.  Be prepared for Class every day.  This means bringing your computer charged, having your binder at your seat, and pencil or pen.
3.  Actively participating in all classroom discussions and activities.
4.  Being respectful of others, yourself, the teacher and classroom materials at all times.
5.  All system and School rules are applicable.
Grading System:
   A=90-100, B=89-80, C=79-70, D=69-=Failing
Classroom Supplies:  
   Binder--Laptop & Charger--Pencil/Pen--
At the end of each six weeks, binders will be graded this will count as a test grade.  (All writings for the six weeks and worksheets must be in the binder)
Entering the Classroom:
   Students should be on time and be in their seats when the bell rings. 
Students have 3 minutes between each class period.  This gives them time to use the restroom or go to their locker. 
Homework Assignments:
   Homework will be any incomplete assignments 
Absences and Make-up Work:
   The student is responsible for all make-up work after presenting an excused or unexcused absence.  Students will have the number of days absent to turn in any make-up assignments.  It is always the student's responsibility to see the teacher and/or another student for missed assignments!!  Some of my work will be posted on Google Classroom, so actually they would be able to work at home on assignment.
Late Work:
   Assignments should be turned in as the teacher asks for them.  If a student does not completed his assignment when due, I will schedule a Lunch Date with the student!  In other words the student will eat lunch with me (in my room) the next day, this will give he or she the  opportunity to get the work completed  will my help!
