Hello My Name Is...
I will be teaching Earth Science and Biology this year at West Davidson High School. I have a B.S. in Kinesiology with a concentration in Sports Medicine from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This will be my fifth year in education.
1st: Honors Biology
4th: Honors Earth Science
First 9 weeks: 40% of student overall grade
Second 9 Weeks: 40% of student overall grade
Final: 20% of student overall grade
Exams/Labs: 60% of student class average
Homework/Quizzes/Participation: 40% of student class average
Students cannot miss more than eight class meetings in one semester. After the eighth absence the student will receive a failing grade for the course. Students will not be able to make up days.
If a student misses more than four days per 9 weeks, they will receive an incomplete for that grading period. If they do not exceed the 8 day maximum by the end of the semester, the calculated grade for that nine weeks will be factored into the student's overall grade for the course.
