Hello Lion Students and Parents!

      This is my 2nd year with the Lake Creek High School Science Department teaching Biology and Environmental Systems.  I can't wait to meet all of my students for the 2020-2021 school year!

     After 26 years in San Antonio I was motivated to move east to be closer to family and grandchildren.  Previously I taught Physics and IPC for three years at Northside ISD.   I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Wright State University in Dayton, OH and branched into teaching after 28+ years in biomedical and other scientific research fields with private industry and the US Government.

     I have one wonderful grandson and granddaughter; Kayden is an adventurous 8 year old and Tinley just turned 19 months old. I can't wait to bring them to events at Lake Creek HS!

     A little information about me is that I love baseball and am a diehard Kansas City Royals fan! Both of my children are Aggies; one from College Station and one from Galveston. I love going to all levels of baseball games and enjoy other sporting events too.

Students, please drop by and say Hi! Let's make this a great year in science!

Grading Policy

Major (Tests, projects) 60%

Daily (assignments, homework, quizzes, labs) 40%

 

Science testing days are Tuesday and Thursday.

Retest Guidelines (full guidelines given in student handbook)—original grade < 60

     Students may retake a test for up to four school days after they are given their test grade in class. The highest grade a student may earn on a retest is 75.  Students are encouraged but not required to attend tutorials before taking a retest. Students are not allowed to retake a test if it was given during the last week of a six weeks grading period.

Test Correction Guidelines (full guidelines given in student handbook)—original grade 60-74

     Students may write corrections for a test for up to four school days after they are given their test grade in class.  Students are allowed to correct a test for up to a 75, the grade earned for correcting every incorrect answer on a test.  Test corrections consist of writing (on a separate sheet of paper) the question and correct answer for every question missed on a test, as well as the reason that is the correct answer.  Students are not allowed to correct a test if it was given during the last week of a six weeks grading period.

Make-Up Guidelines

  • Daily Work: Students should check with their teacher for work they missed due to absence. 
  • Labs: Due to time, some labs can be made up before or after school, and some cannot.  If a lab can be made up, please schedule a time with your teacher before or after school.  If it cannot be made up, your teacher may give you an alternate assignment for your lab grade.

Late Work Guidelines

  • Long term assignments are not accepted late.  Missing school the day before a due date does not give you an extra day.
  • Homework is accepted until the day of the test, however it will be in your best interest to complete it on time for feedback. Deductions on late homework may be applied as I see fit. 
  • If work assigned in class is due by the end of class, it must be completed and turned in before the end of class. 

Biology Lab and Classroom Rules

  • Be prepared when you come to class. Do not be tardy and be prepared to start when the bell rings. Keep up with your materials, notes, and turn in your homework on time.
  • Be respectful especially to your peers. Our classroom will become our science family and often we will all work together. 
  • Be safe in lab! You must sign the Flinn Scientific Contract before you are able to do any lab.

 

You and your lab group will be responsible for your station. Clean up is worth 10% of every lab.

I MUST sign off for you to receive this credit BEFORE you leave my class. No exceptions.
