Where can I find you Ms. Baines?
I am in Room 1009 Periods 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and can often be found in 2022 (Teacher's Lounge), 2006 (Ms. Strollo's Classroom), 2003 (Ms. Mohammed's Classroom), or in Ms. Marilyn's Office by my Room 1003 during Periods 1,5,7.
Can I earn community service hours with you, Ms. Baines?
Yes indeed! I always need help with setting up labs, grading, organizing, etc. . . I even have the forms ready & waiting for you
Which Binder Notes are the ones due next?
Go to the Calendar on this page, look at tomorrow's date, then go to the Unit Tab we are in and find the next video and accompanying binder notes due.
What do I do if I have fallen behind and feel overwhelmed with all the "stuff" I need to do?
Come and talk to me. I am always open to hear and help you.
I messed up Ms. Baines. I am so behind and I think I may have to drop this class. What should I do? I am afraid to talk about this with you. . . .
Don't ever be afraid to talk to a teacher. We are flawed humans just like the rest of the human race. Your best bet to turn this around is to attend my extra help days on Tuesday & Wednesday from 2:20 - 5:00 P.M. I'll be able to work with you a set up a plan in which you can make up the work, but not fall behind with the new material. It will also give you an opportunity to talk one on one, in which you'll find I am totally open and fair.
What if I am new to this school or I have a friend who wants to take the course?
So long as you/they meet the initial requirements (80+ GPA), have intellectual curiosity about what makes us humans tick, excellent work & study habits, and an amenable personality, there are a couple of spots still open. Tell them to come see me after school on Tuesdays or Wednesdays in 1009
What if I love this class but do not want to take the AP Exam?
It is a requirement to take the exam. Come for extra help if you are struggling. If you know now, you won't take the exam, then drop the class now. It's not fair to kids who want your spot but who did not make the cut off.
