I promote a classroom environment that encourages all students to express their thoughts and ideas in ways in which they can feel secure that no other student will make fun of them.

I have referred some pretty disruptive kids to the office in the past, and they turned out just great! Hope springs eternal.

If I must refer a student, it sometimes causes that student to harbor feelings of personal resentment against me, as unfortunate as that may be. Be assured, however, that I harbor no similar feelings against that student. The way I regard it, there are no hard feelings, and nothing personal, it is just business. Respect!

Please direct any questions regarding this classroom policy to me at
