Michelle's Teaching Philosophy:
In my class, everyone must be respectful towards each other to promote a positive learning environment. As a student, you can expect group work and hands on activities to supplement the lessons. Students are expected to take responsibility for their learning and ask for help when necessary. I am happy to help any student during class, 5th hour, or another time set up in advance. The most important aspect of my classroom is ownership of learning. I provide students with  ample opportunities to ask questions and receive extra help. It is up to the student to take responsibility and put for the effort to succeed. I will do my part and you must do yours.
