I’ve taught 3 years in 1 st grade and 4 years in 3 rd grade. I am a big sports fan, especially baseball. I live in Laveen.

RULES Listen to others when they talk. Keep your hands to yourself. Treat others how you want to be treated. Don’t take what does not belong to you. Listen to your teacher.
Behavior System Card system: colored note cards green, yellow, orange, and red. Once a card is pulled, it stays pulled until the following day (everyone starts fresh each morning). When student is disobeying rules, they will first be warned verbally by the teacher. If behavior continues, student will be asked to pull a card from his/her numbered pocket off of the behavior chart. This card is the color green. By telling the student to pull the card themselves, it is making them accountable for their behavior. It also will spoil the “mystery word” reward for the day (see Rewards information). If student continues to disobey rules, they will be asked to pull another card from their pocket off of the behavior chart. This card is the color yellow. If student pulls this card, they will lose lunch recess for the day. If student still continues to disobey rules, they will be asked to pull the next card from their pocket on the behavior chart. This card is the color orange. The student will then receive a phone call home and lose other privileges in the classroom. If the student’s behavior continues and the student has to pull his/her final card, which is red, a request to organize a meeting with parents will be made and/or the principal will be notified. **If a student’s behavior is threatening the safety of themselves or other students, appropriate procedures will be taken and the rules of the card system will not apply. The principal will be notified immediately and the student will be removed from the classroom.**
Rewards Each week the class will have the opportunity to unveil the “mystery word” for the chance to earn a class prize. The only way letters can be unveiled is if no students have to pull cards from the behavior chart. This means that it is a group effort to earn rewards. Even if only one student has to pull a card, it makes it impossible for the class to earn a “mystery word” letter for that day. Only one mystery letter can be earned per day. When all the “mystery word” letters have been unveiled, the class will earn a prize. The following day, a new “mystery word” will take its place and the process will begin again. * The only way to earn the reward is to unveil all the letters. The students may not earn the reward by guessing the word.*
