 Classroom Rules and Procedures

The following rules and procedures are set to help move toward becoming prepare for lifelong learning and success in a changing workplace in accordance with the ROP Mission Statement.

Entering the class:All students are expected to come to class with the materials needed to be successful and engaged in the lesson for the day. On most days, this will include paper, pencil, pen, and any homework or pervious days assignments, that should be turned in or worked on that day. Please be in the room and in your seat before the tardy bell rings. When at your desk quietly take out Journal and answer daily question (displaced on white board) as well as taking out all materials and assignments you will need for class.

Tardy Policy: Students who enter class after the bell will receive a tardy. The first tardy will serve as a warning. Upon the second tardy, the student will need to conferences with teacher after period. If student serves three tardies in a two week time there will be lunch dentation and possible conference with guardian.

Class Dismissal: I dismiss class, not the bell. There may be days when we need a few seconds to complete our work.

When Absent/Make-up assignment: Students will be able to make up work for excused absences. The student will have as many days as they were absent to make up the assignment. (Absent one day- student gets one day to make up an assignment). It is students responsibility to ask you shoulder partner for all make-up work. Turn in all assignments so credit is not lost. I would be happy to help you organize this process.

Leaving the room: Once you are in class, plan to stay. There is plenty of time during your passing periods to do what you need. If you must use the restroom please ask before leaving and request a pass.

Courtesy: At the high school level it is important to start practicing the skills needed in the work force.You will be treated with respect in my room. I do not tolerate derogatory remarks, all electronic devices that are used without permission, speaking when other or myself are speaking to class as a whole, working on non approved class work for other classes, putting on makeup, doing hair or rough housing. Compliance's with these courtesies will provide each student the basic skill to succeed in the workplace.

Classwork: There are some assignments that are accepted late and others that are not.The ability to turn in late work and the points awarded to those assignments will be discussed with each class.

Grading Policy: Refer to Watsonville High Student Handbook Sincerely yours,

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”

I am a California Native, I attended San Lorenzo High School, continuing on to Cabrillo College and received my Medical Assisting Certificate from the ROP of Santa Cruz. I have furthered my education by attending on line classes at UC Davis Extension, and other technical schools. I have three amazing, energetic boys and an astounding supportive husband. I have little spare time but enjoy coaching baseball, being part of my children's home and school club, cooking, crafting and spending time being socially active when possible. My teaching philosophies originated from a long childhood passion, my commitment to promote knowledge and equality among all students is a value deeply rooted within my own core. Incorporating my educational experiences and industry based values leads my philosophies. I aim to close the gap that students face in today's society due to ethnicity, gender, race, social economic levels, and learning differences. Promoting equality and knowledge through teaching respect and professionalism, will allow students to gain knowledge far beyond the core instructional standards. Bringing correct English commutation, computed assisted instruction, appropriate reading and writing assignments  and modified accommodations for varied learning capabilities is the base of my philosophies. However I aim to excel far beyond my base philosophies. Incorporating solo and group activities that relate to instructional standards allows hands on experiences, thus giving students the ability to physically and mentally interrupt lessons. I hope to promote interactive challenges and effective learning strategies that engage students in all areas. Finally, I aim to provide a secure environment with compassion, discipline, respect, communication and professional attributes and giving all students the a value for success.
