This is a one page handout I give to the students on the first day of class. It outlines what the kids ask me most - grades, supplies, folder layout, etc. I tweak this each year, but he format stays the same. The kids get a kick out of my picture and the parents appreciate it too.
I've been teaching mathematics, international studies, and media design since 1998 in an urban district located in the southeast region of the USA. Before becoming a teacher, I worked as an electrical engineer for several years.
