About Me

I am a recent graduate from the University of Dubuque. I am also from Dubuque, and love living here. I have one brother and one sister. I love the Iowa Hawkeyes. They're the only sports time I really watch! In my free time I like to hang out with my family and friends, and also enjoy shopping and watching movies. I can't wait to learn and get to know all of you! It's going to be a great year!

Classroom Rules

  • Treat others how you want to be treated
  • Always use your manners
  • Treat everyone with respect
  • Always listen when the teacher is talking
  • Always raise your hand

Homework Policy

Homework is expected to be turned in on the due date assigned. If it is turned in a day late, the student will receive half credit. Any days after that the student will receive a zero. Accommodations will be made for students who have an excused absence for the day when the assignment is given. Every student will have one free pass per trimester to use if they forget to hand in/complete homework, and have a chance to get full credit.
