What do these sayings have in common? They all suggest positive work ethics, and they reflect my personal beliefs about planning ahead, pacing yourself, and using your time wisely.
So what do I expect? At the very least, I expect you to take part in your education. Your education is a very big part of your life, and will help determine your career options and the quality of the entire rest of your life. I expect you to
- arrive to my class on time.
- bring all the necessary supplies with you the first time, and not ask to go back to your locker because you "forgot" your book or binder.
- stay alert and attentive in my class at all times.
- get enough sleep during the evening hours at home so that you can be productive during the daylight learning hours of school.
- work up to your potential, and then some.
- have pride. Have pride in your work; have pride in your school, and have pride in who you are.
- learn. Learn the lessons presented in the curriculum, learn the standards for the various assessments, but most importantly-- learn about yourself through literature. These are universal lifelong lessons that are priceless.
- respect me. I've earned it. I am your teacher, and I am looking out for your best interest at all times. Do the same for me.
