Hello Students and Parents
The best way to reach me is by email ----firstname.lastname@example.org I usually can respond the same day. I have an open door policy and I always encourage parents to arrange visits, or drop by the office to check-in and then come on down to our room in J-3.
My art class is divided into units of study that are based on the California State Standards for art. I will be teaching the elements of art, and the principles of art for both the 7th grade and 8th grade standards. Periods 2 and 6 are 1/2 year classes. The other classes rotate each trimester to computer or guitar class.
Grading is based on completion of project, class participation and attendance. Students earn a daily grade of 20 points. Students are responsible to get special make-up assignments for each day missed to earn back the lost points for absences regardless of reason for absence. I have these projects available to the students at all times. I can also send them to the office for pick-up upon request.
Discipline is a rare problem in art class. In the event of a problem, I will talk to the student privately, if necessary call home and assign a detention. Feel free to contact me at anytime and my door is always open :)
