Our classroom runs on respect. I respect you and you respect me, and we all respect each other. I value you as a person and a learner. The way you show me respect is by locking up your cell phone in the cell phone caddy, 100% of the time you are in 310. By doing so - you are showing me that you are respecting my rule - and that you are respecting yourself enough to free yourself from all distraction for those eighty minutes.
You will arrive to class on time, come to class prepared with your work, and most of all, come to class with an eager and positive attitude. You will be respectful about hearing others' views - I want everyone to feel safe in here. The rest will fall into place. I am here for you - and look forward to a great year together.
