Welcome to my teacher page!
I am proud to be a part of the JKHS family.
My goal is that each of my students will improve their reading, writing, speaking and thinking skills while in my class.
I plan to ask my students three questions every day, and I expect the answers to be as follows:
Question- “What are you?” Answer - “I am strong and powerful.”
By asking this and requiring the answer, I intend to make students believe that they are strong in heart and powerful in mind.
Question- “What do we do?” Answer- “We respect each other and we help each other.”
I believe that life will offer plenty of experiences that expose students to competition. Our class will celebrate cooperation and communication.
Question- “Where can we go?” Answer- “Anywhere we choose.” Our students can achieve any life they choose to have, but the key is choice. They must realize that they are responsible for choosing to put in the effort to reach their goals.
Students will be expected to conduct themselves in a scholarly manner at all times.
We can discuss any subject and appreciate all points of view as long as we do so with respect and in a scholarly fashion.
Every student will be responsible for his/her own work. Plagiarism/copying will not be tolerated.
Students will raise their hands in order to be recognized to ask a question or to answer one. We will show respect while someone else has the floor.
I look forward to seeing you in class.
