ME, MYSELF, & MR. SCHIZZLE Graduate of California State, Long Beach with a Bachelor’s Degree and Teaching Credential Master’s Degree in Educational Administration with a Credential in Administration Educator of 14 years & proud to be here!

MY EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY I believe that with the right attitude and hard work, every child can be successful and contribute to society in a positive way. I strive to be a role model that all of my students can look up to (not just because I’m tall). Children benefit greatly from being “connected” to caring adults. I create an encouraging and healthy environment where students feel safe to take educational risks. Students should feel confident in their abilities and not fear what they already know.
LEARNING ENVIRONMENT We want Sixth Grade to be a positive experience for all. In order to make this happen, students will be treated as scholars and are encouraged to show respect for themselves, classmates, teachers, and learning materials. Some of the basic procedures required of all sixth grade students include: Be respectful to others Be responsible Write in your Minder Binder every day Be in your seat by the time the tardy bell rings Bring necessary materials to class All student textbooks should be covered at all times Stay organized Be polite and cooperative Bring your best attitude and effort to make your first year of middle school successful At Oak we recognize our students in many ways. These include Paw Passes, positive notes home, and class privileges. Unacceptable class work and behavior will also receive parent notification in the form of written correspondence, progress reports, detention, or notes and a phone call home.
OAK CITIZENSHIP RUBRIC Outstanding “O” Student consistently listens, follows directions, and obeys rules. Student is kind, courteous, and respectful towards others. Satisfactory “S” Student usually listens, follows directions, and obeys rules. Student is kind, courteous, and respectful towards others. Needs Improvement “N” Student regularly needs reminders to listen, follow directions, and obey rules. Student often must be reminded to be kind, courteous, and respectful towards others. Unsatisfactory “U” Student does not listen, follow directions, or obey rules. Student is disrespectful towards the teachers and/or other students, and makes little attempt to change behavior.
STUDY SKILLS (6 WEEKS) At Oak, we want every child to succeed. The first 6 weeks of the sixth grade exploratory wheel are meant to give students the skills and healthy habits to be successful in middle school. Topics include: Getting to know the campus, getting organized and staying organized, communication, real world skills for success, online conduct.
KEYBOARDING Students engage in a self-paced computer program that teaches them how to type. There are computer and textbook lessons. Each milestone in the program is meant to help students reach mastery of the keyboard. Students must reach a certain level by the end of the 6 weeks. The program is called Applied Microtype.
