1.      Respect yourself, the teacher & others

·         Show respect for the teacher, yourself and others at all times.

·         Respect others’ property.  Avoid touching or writing on anything that does not belong to you (including desks, textbooks, teacher’s belongings, walls, etc.). Don't expect that others will clean-up your messes. Please pick-up after yourself. 

·         Respect yourself and the rest of us by using appropriate language and wearing appropriate clothing.

·         Be a kind person.

2.      Put forth your best effort at all times

·         Always do your own best work.

·         Put learning ahead of getting good grades. 

·         Put quality ahead of just getting it done.

3.      Be prepared for class each day.       

4.      Follow directions when given

·         When directions are given, do your best to follow them the first time.  If you are confused or have questions, ask.  

5.      Pay attention, participate and ask questions

·         Engage in what is going on in the classroom.  If you have a question, ask it!   Be proactive about your learning and don’t be afraid to ask for help.  If you feel most comfortable waiting until after class, that is ok!

6.      Preserve a positive learning environment

·         Student actions that interfere with teaching or learning in the classroom will NOT be tolerated. 

7.      Take responsibility for your actions

·         If you are confronted about a rule infraction, own up to it.  Don’t deny it, lie about it, or blame someone else.

·         All handbook rules will be enforced.  Please read your handbook.

About Me
I grew up in South Omaha and went to Assumption grade school and then Omaha South High. I received my Bachelors degree from the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 2002 and my first Masters Degree in 2003. My second Masters degree I received in 2007 from the University of Phoenix. This is my fifteenth year of teaching, five of them being with Ralston Public Schools.

My home life consists of my fiancé and 3 dogs. I love to read and complete crossword puzzles, which I leave out on the coffee table until I finish them.  I enjoy refinishing furniture and repurposing items and making junk new again.
