I will create a safe and effective learning environment where students are
equally and fairly
I will not allow misbehavior which compromises the educaton of any student
I will listen and find answers for every honet question
Grading Policy
Late work policy
tardy policy
Tips for success:

i also have kids keep a colored folder (report type) to keep this
information in ( 3 hole punched)
they also keep class notes, critiques, rubrics in for reference
signed student / parent form to know parents have seen the above
and let them know you care and you enjoy what you teach
