I am a firm believer in setting goals!  Setting goals creates focus, cultivates positive energy and attitudes, and empowers students to make changes in their own behavior as they learn.  Reaching daily goals will give students the sense of accomplishment that fosters confidence and the desire to reach even higher.  The rules and procedures listed here are to help students attain those goals.  They are not meant to create stress, but to help alleviate distractions.  Each student brings his or her own unique gifts and abilities, and it is my privilege to be your teacher.  For this reason, I have high expectations as we work together to make this your best year at Ebenezer Middle School.

        We will have a respectful and disciplined classroom.  Enter in an appropriate manner.  You are expected to read the Agenda to know what has been planned for the day and future assignments.  Homeroom should be a time for preparing for the day (making sure you have needed supplies), making up assignments, and asking for help.  Your interactive notebook should be with you EVERY DAY.  Please ask for help! Tutoring will be available with Mrs. Wendy Crosby every day during homeroom.  
         I am available for tutoring on Wednesday mornings at 7:30 in room 316.
