Expectations for OUR classroom:
- We laugh WITH each other, not AT each other.
- We don’t take ourselves too seriously.
- We smile at our mistakes AND then we learn from them!
i. In my opinion, this is a life skill that is often overlooked. Having a sense of
humor, being able to laugh with each other, or even at yourself is a key skill to
getting through life in a positive way. We all make mistakes, why not enjoy the
mistakes and learn from them instead of beating ourselves up becoming afraid
- One single word “RESPECT”. Aretha Franklin sang an amazing song about it.
- Have respect for yourself.
- Have respect for those around you.
- Have respect for your property and the property of others.
i. If we all follow this expectation, then we will all get along very well with one
- We take pride in ourselves
- We take pride in our work
- We take pride in the way that we treat each other
- We take pride in our education
I have high expectations for student behavior. At the same time, I understand that no one is perfect. I will handle most behavior issues on my own in the classroom. I use negative behavior as a learning opportunity. We work through issues together, and hopefully turn them into a positive experience.
In most instances, there will not be any parent notification, however, if I see recurring behavior that is not changing, I will call, or email parents so that together, we can fix things.
In the rare case that there is something extreme, a student will be sent to the office. In this case, expect immediate notification, from myself, or Mrs. Wildoner.
