Mr. Calvin G. Burr
Ms. DeShawn's 7th Grade History and Geography Classes
Hi Parents and Students,
I would like to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year! I anticipate that this is going to be an exceptional year. My goal for the 2017-2018 school year is two-fold. First, I hope to make all of my students learn to love Social Studies and second, to help them be successful on each exam.
I am Ms. DeShawn, and this is my first year at EMS. This will be my 17th year in education. I am from the United States of America, and live in the state of South Carolina. I studied Elementary Education at the University of South Carolina. In my free time I enjoy reading, jogging, travel, and the arts. I absolutely can't wait to be your teacher this year. We are going to have an AWESOME time!
Week of 07/01/2018- Africa and Kenya
Students will need to bring Foundations Book
Notebook Due 11/1/18
My Expectations for Every Student:
- I expect every student to have all of their supplies, and be ready to listen and learn once the bells rings.
- The best way to learn is to participate. My class is interactive learning, and I expect for each student to be engaged and participate to increase their knowledge of the content that is delivered.
- If you are absent from class, you are responsible for obtaining assignments and notes when you return. Check for assignments on the assignment board. Worksheets and any additional handouts can be obtained from the make-up folder. (You have five school days after an excused absence to make up any missed work.)
- I expect every student to on their very best behavior while in class. I will not have the learning on other students hindered because one or two students fail to comply with the class rules.
