The path to knowledge is worth the effort!
Parents and Students; Welcome to the school year, 2018-2019.
Look to the left and you will see that each class that I teach has its own link that will give you an overview of what is happening during the day and up coming week in that particular class. These links are where students and parents can check on current lessons being taught, assignments, upcoming quizzes and tests. Daily class schedules are fluid and subject to change.Weekly overviews of lessons planned will flex given the pace necessary to cover a concept. I often extend lessons if the class is not grasping ideas, or combine lessons if the class demonstrates mastery of the topic.
I pace my class according to the input of those students actively involved in the learning process. If a student doesn't get involved with the lesson and ask questions I will not be aware that they are struggling with a concept. Due to the highly challenging nature of my classes, students who fail to pay attention, review for quizzes/tests, or complete assignments can be quickly left behind. Also, students who demonstrate a weakness of understanding on a topic may need to schedule tutoring during lunch or after school. I can always be contacted via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. See link at left.
