My classroom is for class work only not a hangout :)

If you would like additional assistance, to discuss grades, inquire about missing assignments or missed work you will need to come in before or after school.

You are more than welcome to come in any time between 7:30am and 3:30pm for extra work time... EVEN if I have a class during your free hours. If you would like to come in during the lunch periods you will need to make prior arrangements with me as the hallway door and my room door may be locked. When you come into work please don't distract the current class in session and do not bring friends with you.
