1. Respect yourself, the teacher & others

2. Put forth your best effort at all times

· Always do your own best work.

· Put learning ahead of getting good grades.

· Put quality ahead of just getting it done

3. Be prepared for class each day

4. Follow directions when given

When directions are given, do your best to follow them the first time. If you are confused or have questions, ask. I would rather have you stop class to clarify than be off task while everyone else is working.

5. Pay attention, participate and ask questions

6. Preserve a positive learning environment

7. Take responsibility for your actions


1. Turn off cell phones & electronic devices

Cell Phones should be turned off and invisible during the class period. If I see or hear your phone it will be taken away and given to an administrator, according to cell phone policy outlined in the EMS handbook. Refusal to turn over the cell phone will be treated as insubordinate behavior.

2. No food or drink, except water

3. Arrive to class on time & ready to learn

· When the bell rings, you need to be sitting in your assigned seat.

· You should immediately begin on the warm up activity.

· Be “physically” and “mentally” present in the classroom

4. Never line up at the door before dismissal

5. Do not cheat, plagiarize, or copy work
