What is your policy about missing work?

If they are absent, then they will be given a reasonable amount
of time to make up their work. Exceptions are made for unique
situations are also made. I'm not perfect and don't expect my
students to
be.

Do you give extra credit?

My child has too much homework!

I'm not a believer in large quanties of homework. I demand your
child works hard in class and want my students to have enough
time to have a life at home. I always have math homework.
If your child uses time wisely in my class he/she should not have too much homework.

How is my child doing?

I am always available to talk and promptly respond to e-mails. I
consistently input grades and they are available on the district
website through the parent portal. If you don't have internet access
I would be glad to print them up for you.
