I expect my students to come prepared to learn with all the materials they need on a daily basis.  These include your textbook, folder, notebook, pencil(s), and any other items I will require on a given day.  When the bell rings, you should be in your seat ready to begin my class.

I will challenge you in my classes, and want for you to work hard and try your best.  In my classroom, everyone has the right to learn to the best of their ability.  I will expect nothing less than total respect for yourself, your teacher, and your classmates.  Doing this will ensure my class has the opportunity to be fun and exciting.

I understand, for some of you, Science may not be your favorite subject or interest you as much as other things.  However, I ask that you keep an open mind to thinking/learning about things you may have never thought about before.  After some time in my class, maybe your opinion about science will change.  If not, I hope you at least walk away with an appreciation for it, and the many roles it plays in our lives.
