To me teaching is about one thing learning. For me,

teaching students comes down to giving them the tools to
express themselves in a positive way. Throughout my
classes students will learn to express themselves in multiple
As I teach students I hope to learn from them and learn to
express myself better as well.

Late Work/Makeup Policy

Almost all of the work we do in class is displaying a skill in front of the
teacher and other students. As such most work will be due in class.
Differences in the two classes are as follows:
Theater: If you are not able to be there at the time you are appointed to act
out a skit or part of a play you will have to schedule a time with me to do
Speech: As a general rule for speeches, if you know you are going to be
absent the day you are assigned to give a speech you must switch with
another student and have them agree to it. If you do not do so you may
make up the speech on the makeup day at a penalty of 20 points. If you
happen to be sick on that day and have a doctors note excusing you, you
may still give your speech on the makeup day without any penalty.

Instant Referrals

My classroom is meant to be a safe place for students to learn how to

display skills and articulate their ideas without ridicule. Students will be
able to speak their morals, their viewpoints, and their ideas, within reason,
without fear of others putting them down for it. I do not allow any form of
hate speech, nor do I allow bullying, and swift punishment will come on
those who decide to use either in my classroom or around me in the school
I would like to be able to have a relaxed atmosphere where students can
learn from me and I from them. I hope to have an enjoyable time this year
with you.
