Welcome! My name is Paula Millner, RN. This is my 4th year to teach Health Science and my 1st year teaching at MISD. I have been a RN for 25 years and spent most of my nursing career working in Labor and Delivery.  The past 3 years of teaching has been a rewarding change.  I love to share the knowledge and passion I have for health care with my students. I have been married for 26 years and I have a son (Nate) who is a freshman at LCHS.

Retest Policy- Retests and test corrections are at teacher discretion.  Re-instruction and/or tutorials must have taken place prior to retest.

Absent Policy- If you have been absent see me on the day you return to class to see what you have missed.  I will give you an adjusted due date for assignments.

Cell Phone Policy- No Cell Phone use during class discussion time.  If I am talking I do not want to see cell phones or ear buds in use.  First offense is a warning.  2nd offense I will take up your phone and send it to AP office.  There are many occasions where I will allow you to use your phone on school projects, but off task behavior such as watching Netflix or going to social media sites is never allowed. 

Seating Assignments- I have my classroom arranged in groups because we do a lot of group projects.  I allow you to collaborate with your group on most daily assignments.  I believe that the social aspect of school is important.  I want you to enjoy coming to class and be able to sit with and interact with your friends.  Remember- Sitting where you want is a Privilege and not a Right.  If you abuse this privilege by not working well together or talking at inappropriate times you will be moved.  Please sit in you assigned seat every day.  I take attendance by seating chart.

Turning in Assignments- Please turn in all assignment on or before the due date in red file folder.  Please put first and last name and period on all work.  Place in the appropriate folder for your period.  

Tutorials- Every Tues and Thurs 2:40-3:30. I am very flexible with tutorial times and can schedule a tutorial appointment at a different time if needed.
