Why are procedures important?:

Why are procedures important? A procedure is the way that we do things. To do things right, we have to follow some simple procedures, for example: To open your locker, you have to select your combination as directed by the lock manufacturer. What are some other examples of times you may need to follow procedures?

Will my teacher treat me fairly? :

Will my teacher treat me fairly? YES, YES, YES! I follow the same rules as you do and I wouldn’t be respecting others if I didn’t treat each one of you fairly. Your definition and my definition of fair may be different. I will hold all of you to the same expectations. Remember that I care about you and want nothing more than to see you be successful and reach your dreams!
