Welcome Back RHHS Jaguars.  

Teamwork   It is my pleasure to serve as your Secondary English (English I or IV) teacher this 2020-2021 school year. I must warn you that I have very high expectations for you (your behavior, your academic performance and your personal growth). 
     
I expect excellence because I KNOW what you are able to do when you give your best. Before we get started, I want to make you some promises: 
     
  • If I ask you to do an assignment, I have already done it. (Check the model.) 
  • If I give you a grade, you will understand how you earned it (and how to improve). 
  • If I ask you to behave a certain way at a certain time, I will also behave that way and explain why. 
  • If I ask about a concept on a test, you will have already seen it, heard it, discussed it and noted it in class. 
  • If I ask you complete a task, I am going to grade it and enter it in the gradebook. 
  • If you have questions about the End-of-Year exams, I will find you an answer.
 
Those are my promises. Now, here is what you can expect from me on a daily basis: 
  • Expect me to make instructional decisions that will get you to your chosen career.  
  • Expect me to be prepared and knowledgeable about whatever content I teach. 
  • Expect me to keep you moving and working from bell to bell. 
  • Expect me to quiz you and test you often. 
  • Expect me to grade notebooks (print or digital) and consumable textbooks (so don't leave them home). 
  • Expect me to know your personal academic levels and growth goals. (I'm watching you.) 
  • Expect me to be in contact with you (digital for face-to-face) everyday. You can't hide from me. ;)


Teamwork

It's going to be a great year. As a matter of fact, I DARE YOU to be great. You might just find out that you are exceptional in ways you have never imagined.  

  

Sincerely, 

 

Ms. Timothy,  

Your Instructor
