SCHOOL CAREER I went to West Middle School and graduated from DeSoto High School I attended Prairie View A&M University to become a teacher Before coming to West, I taught at a Lanier Middle School in Houston, TX.
THE LAW!!! R-E-S-P-E-C-T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - I DO NOT TOLERATE DISRESPECT! -Each student is required to respect themselves, their teachers/facilitators, and their peers AT ALL TIMES! -Respect is earned, not given.
CLASS POLICIES L - Listen to Instructions E- Enter and Exit Prepared A - Always Try Your Best R - Respect Yourself and Others N- No Excuses Allowed!
ISTEAM STUDENTS HAVE SWAG! Success Willpower Attitude Goals
RESTROOM All students will have the opportunity to go to the restroom during passing periods. If you go to the restroom during a rotation, DIY time or project time, YOU MUST SIGN THE RESTROOM LOG ON THE DOORS OF EACH RESTROOM. DURING ROTATIONS, DO NOT ASK TO GO TO THE RESTROOM UNLESS IT IS AN EMERGENCY.
HALL PASSES - If you need to go to another iSTEAM area or out of iSTEAM for any reason, you MUST HAVE AN iSTEAM TEACHER PASS. -Each teacher has a different colored pass. -NO PASS=NO ENTRY TARDY: - If you are tardy, you MUST sign the tardy log located at the iSTEAM student entrance.
JOURNALS Each iSTEAM student is required to get a composition book for History. Every DT/DIY day, you will use your journal to record warmups, take notes, complete DIYs, paste in organizers and other helpful strategies Journals are to be turned in to the GREEN BINS located to the top of the binder shelf.
JOURNALS JOURNALS MUST STAY IN THEIR DESIGNATED BIN AND CANNOT BE TAKEN HOME UNLESS THEY ARE CHECKED OUT TO STUDY. YOU MUST CHECK IT BACK IN THE FOLLOWING SCHOOL DAY! IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP UP WITH YOUR JOURNAL AND PLACE IT IN THE PROPER PLACE IF IT IS LOST, IT IS ALSO YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO RE-DO ALL PREVIOUS PAGES IN YOUR JOURNAL!
DIYS AND GRADES I will grade journals weekly to make sure that all DIYs and notes are taken. If there is an assignment that is not given in your notebook, it must be turned in to the GREEN AND WHITE trays by the printer. DO NOT PLACE ANYTHING IN MY HANDS!
PROJECT GRADES Each group will be given a rubric for the history portion of every project. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR READ THE RUBRIC AT LEAST 3 TIMES TO GAIN UNDERSTANDING IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT ANY PORTION OF THE PROJECT, DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO ASK.
QUOTES: LOOK UP! Yesterday is history, Tomorrows a mystery, and Today is a gift. That’s why its called the present! Open up the gift and embrace the opportunity to SHINE TODAY!
LEARNING IS FUN History will be: -Fun -Interactive -Engaging -Realistic
