Grading Policy and Behavior Expectations


Dear Parents/Guardians,

††††††††† I am very excited to be teaching your students!I am looking forward to getting to know them and helping them achieve their fullest potential.My goal is to teach them to think critically and logically while achieving (or surpassing!) the California State Standards for Mathematics.I will be reinforcing good study habits.As long as your student is willing to pay attention and work, they will do well.

††††††††† The students have chosen to be graded as follows:

††††††††† Poor behavior will not be tolerated.I expect students to treat everyone in the classroom with decency and respect.Students who cannot conduct themselves appropriately will serve lunch detention with me on the Thursday following the offense and will be required to bring their lunch on that day.If a student is sent out of my classroom, they will serve after-school detention.

††††††††† Together, our goal is to give your student the best education possible.Thank your for your cooperation and support to that end!Feel free to contact me by voicemail (x204) or email ( you would like to be contacted by email, please send me an email with your studentís name in the subject line.I am working on this website ( to post weekly homework assignments, objectives, and grades.Please let me know if you have problems with it.
