** Classroom Rules **

Jesus' second greatest commandment was to show love to one another. This implies respect. That's all I ask. Of course, this encompasses a great deal. Such as:

Talking - One at a time. Don't talk over top of someone else (including me!)

Cell Phones - In your pocket or backpack. Don't have them in front of you. Ever. If you need to make a call or text, please leave the room.

Complaining - If you have an issue, chances are I'll hear you out, but you need to approach me after class.

These are "The Big Three" for me... infractions on these instantly make me crabby. There's your warning! :)
