EXPECTATIONS:

 The #1 expectation in my room is RESPECT.  You will be respectful to me and to each other (this includes property).  Disrespect is unacceptable and will be dealt with immediately.

Other expectations include:

  • Be on time, with all materials, and ready to learn.
  • Turn in all assignments on time.  Not doing so will result in a reduced grade or zero.
  • Take responsibility for your actions.  We all make mistakes! Learn from it and move on.
  • Be positive!  Remember: A bad attitude is like a flat tire; you won’t get anywhere unless you change it!   

 

The JFK Discipline plan will apply at all times.  I will give two verbal warnings; anything after that, the student’s name is put into the behavior folder.  If a student gets their name in the folder three times in one day, they will receive a 15 minute detention.  Please be sure to look over the JFK Parent/Student Handbook, as well as the Dress Code Policy. Three violations of the dress code will also result in a 15 minute detention.

 

HOMEWORK:

For Social Studies and Religion, homework will include reading, worksheets, review questions and projects, to name a few.  Students must have a silent reading book with them at all times.

 

Student’s Homework Responsibilities:

  1.  Students are expected and encouraged to write all homework assignments in their planners each day.
  2. All homework must be neatly done and complete when turned in.
  3. Homework MUST be student’s OWN work.
  4. Homework must be turned in on time.

If homework is not turned in on time, the following consequences will occur:

-The student’s grade will be lowered by one point each day it is not turned in.  After a week, the grade will be zero if still not turned in. If the assignment is turned in before the end of the quarter, the student will receive partial credit and will no longer have a zero.

-Not turning in homework also results in being written in the folder for “missing assignments”.

 

GRADING:

Grading is based on homework, quizzes, tests, and class participation.

 

 

 


   

 

 

Biography

This is my first year as a classroom teacher here at JFK and I am looking forward to an extraordinary year!  I am excited to meet and get to know the students.

I attended JFK as a student and then moved on and graduated from Assumption High School.  I graduated in December of 1999 from St. Ambrose University with my degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis on Reading and PreK.  Upon graduating, I taught preschool and Kindergarten for a few years and then moved on to teach Level One and Two Spanish at Assumption for 2 years.  After Assumption I taught 6th and 7th Exploratory Spanish and 8th grade Level One Spanish at Williams Intermediate.  At the end of my second year, I had my oldest son and have been home raising my two boys for the last 11 years.  I was very excited to come back as a substitute last year and return to full time this year.

I live in Davenport with my husband, 2 sons (who attend JFK) and our German Shepherd Dog.  I love to bake and decorate cake/cake pops and read in my spare time.
