I ask that students with concerns take personal responsibility and address them with me in person first. The ability to advocate for themselves is one of the most important skills young people can learn in school-- if we let them.
I am always available after school for extra help every Tuesday at 2:00 or by prior arrangement during advisories and Thursdays after school. Please encourage your son or daughter to see me--
I am truly happy to help.
Should you need to contact me directly, you may reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
This website has been designed to support students in taking personal responsibility for their learning. If your son or daughter is absent, he or she is expected to check with peers, before or immediately after returning to school, to obtain any missed assignments. More detailed absence expectations are found here. For students' convenience, all course handouts are available on the course's main page (see above for course pages). All major quizzes, tests, and project due dates are always posted on the course calendar. Freshman students' homework assignments are posted both on the main page in the course's calendar and Twitter feed. (Please note that students and teacher are not "friended" in any way.) In the bar above, you can search the entire site for key word of handouts or remedial skills (e.g., "research paper" or "nouns").
Homework grades are generally available on iParent/Aspen the day the assignment is due. Quizzes, tests, and essays take longer to assess, so these are usually available up to two weeks after submission. If you have forgotten your Aspen password, you may recover it here.
