At North Bergen High School, students should always observe and follow the rules and regulations found within the Student Handbook. In addition, all students should show respect for themselves, their peers, and all teachers/faculty/staff.
I expect everyone to be prepared for class on a daily basis. That means you should have your English notebook, writing utensil, and a copy of whatever we are currently reading. Our class will be a mixture of lectures, discussions, and group work, this means your participation is needed for optimal success.
If you miss a class, it is your responsibility to get the notes you missed (you can come to extra help for this too). You will not be "excused" when you have missing work or come into the next class with no reading because you "missed the last class so you didn't know."
All assignments are due on the due date determined by me. All printed papers should be typed in standard MLA format: double-spaced, Times New Roman size 12 font, 1-inch margins with proper header (1/2 inch right aligned, last name and page number) and heading (your name, my name, class/pd, due date).
The best way to contact me outside of school is via email at email@example.com.You should feel free to email me about assignments, but for lengthy discussions I will ask you to meet with me before/after class, or during extra help on upon request.
