  • Classroom Management

    Use Google Classroom for the JOBS list.  A copy of the Syllabus is posted here as well as under Google Classroom (Menu Tab is "About") and other important tools for the classroom.  

    Classroom Rules:  

    Know the secret password and wait to be admitted at the door.  I enjoy greeting you each day and coaching your pronunciation.

    Be in your seat on time, with your notebook and pencil when class officially begins.  If you arrive late, a knock on the door will alert a student who will admit you, with a "lo siento" - you are not required to give him/her the password - rather you will say it to me.

    No gum because it poses a choking hazard when speaking certain Spanish letters.

    No cell phones on your person - they are kept inside your backpack and your backpack is placed on top of or under the countertop, out of the way so it won't trip anyone and also so that no one will crush your netbook or phone.

    Be kind and respectful.

    Follow all of the expectations as outlined in the syllabus with regard to Participation and being attentive, and the P.A.T.  In addition, follow this school's rules as outlined in the Student/Parent Handbook..
