All students are talented, smart, and capable of success--no exceptions.   This is the philosophy of teachers at W.V.M.S. Now, there are certain responsibilities each of us have in a school setting. For example, teachers have the responsibility of preparing lessons according to the standards they're given and to provide for each student a safe learning environment, and to also care for each student as effectively, appropriately, and realistically as possible; students are expected to perform both in and outside of the class in an academic-first sort of way; and parents are expected to be involved in the lives of their children by nurturing them and being interested in what the student learns each day. When one or more of these is lacking, a student struggles to achieve what's expected of them. In my classroom, I expect students to understand their personal responsibility. Everyone laughs at, "The dog ate my homework," excuse because it's become old hash. In reality, there's nothing funny about irresponsibility and pushing blame. However, the same is true for both parents and teachers. Let's strive together to ensure each student--your student--understands their goals and what kind of effort it'll take to accomplish them. Let's also be realistic with each other, communicate, and enjoy this year.

Here is an example: 2-25-16 Period 1: Math Teacher: Mr. Dude Studied: fractions Homework: Fractions 1-20 Period 2: Science Teacher: Mrs. Dude Studied: Biomes Homework: None Etcetera… Then ask your child to show you the graded work when it is returned.
