• This is my 21st year of teaching
• BS in Elementary Education, Minor in
Mathematics --University of Wisconsin-River Falls
• MS in Elementary Education, Science
Specialist option – Arizona State University
• How am I graded?
– 20% class/home work *
– 80% “Assessments” --quizzes/tests/labs
Check grades at least once a week
*Homework would primarily be completing or “polishing”
work from class and studying for exams
Students who are absent should check the website or their
agendas for details. You receive two days to make up work for
each day you are absent.
*50% off for late daily class/home work
10% off for each day a project is late. (maximum 3 days)
