Welcome to the Koala Team!

I teach Math and Social Studies. I am looking forward to working with you and your child to help make the transition to middle school enjoyable and successful.

 

Classroom Rules

  1. Be respectful
  2. Be responsible
  3. Follow the conduct code in our student agenda

 

Behavior/Discipline

We work to maintain a fun, active and academically rigorous learning environment.  Students in our classes are respectful and well-behaved.  However, if class rules are violated and instruction is routinely interrupted the following consequences may apply:

  1. Verbal warning
  2. Time out with class work in another room for 15 minutes
  3. Lunch  detention
  4. Student/teacher conference
  5. Teacher/parent communication
  6. Student is referred to an administrator

 

 

Gradebook

Graded assignments are listed in the School Loop Gradebook, the district’s online grade book.  Each family will receive a letter with a unique login and password so you can follow your child’s progress.  We encourage you to check on your child’s two or more times each week.

 

 

Homework

Homework is assigned regularly.  Studying for tests is considered a homework assignment.  Students are required to write their assignments in a student agenda which should be reviewed by a parent or a guardian regularly. Your child should never be spending more than 60 minutes on homework.

 

Homework Help

 

Homework Club meets every Tuesday afterschool from 3:00 to 4:00.  A schedule is posted in my window. A late bus is available to students who regularly take the school bus.  If you think your child would benefit from such a program please encourage them to attend.

 

Brain Fuse:  Santa Clara City Library offers free online homework help to students with a Santa Clara City library card at Library.santaclara.gov

 

Late Homework Policy

It is extremely important that students complete their school work on time.  Assignments that are turned in on time may receive the full value of the grade earned.  Late work, however, may only receive partial credit.

 

Grading Policy

There are four grading categories that are weighted to reflect the importance of learning.   Students will be graded on homework, class work, projects and assessments (tests). The majority of a grade is based on how well a student does on assessments (tests) and projects.  If a student wants to improve a grade it can be done, most effectively, by doing well on tests and projects.

Grade Improvement

If a student wishes to improve a grade for a class, I may give students the opportunity to re-take a test or complete an alternative assessment. Re-taking tests is done only at my discretion and it is not required by our school or by district policy.   Students may be eligible re-take a test if they score a grade of D+ (69%) or lower.  In most cases, the highest possible grade a student can earn on re-take is 70% (C-)

 

 

 

 

Handwriting

Students are expected to complete final copies of projects and major writing assignments legibly. They may write in cursive, print, or type on the computer.
