Expectations

It is my belief that you are being prepared for the business world, therefore the quality of your work should be the very best.  Final copies must be perfect to receive an A.  If you are having difficulty with anything I will do my very best to help you!  Please ask for help; I am not a good mind reader!

I expect that you will RESPECT me, RESPECT others, and RESPECT yourself at all times. 

Classroom Rules

*Be ON TIME to class.  The tardy policy in the handbook will be strictly enforced!

*Be considerate of others.

*Be polite--Don't talk while others are speaking.  DO NOT use foul language.

*Stay in your seat during the class period.

*NO TALKING or wandering eyes during tests--either will result in a zero on the test.

*TAKE CARE of the furniture and equipment.

*You may not be in the hall during class, therefore you will not receive a pass for the restroom except in case of EMERGENCY.  Please use your in-between class time effectively.

*NO GAMES OR INTERNET ACTIVITY ALLOWED WITHOUT PERMISSION. 

*NO CELL PHONES OR ELECTRONIC DEVICES PERMITTED AT ANY TIME.

Homework Policy

See Student Handbook.  You need to come to class prepared to work, that is, with pencil, pen, paper and book, etc.  Points will be given according to length and difficulty of assignments.  Late homework assignments will NOT be accepted, unless absent, and then only if you had no previous knowledge of the work.  Cheating will not be tolerated and will result in 0 points for that assignment (homework, quiz, test, etc.). 

If you need help in the evenings, please feel free to call or e-mail.
