Well, before the school year began there was some house cleaning issues I addressed. Since this will be my first full year of teaching and somewhat the “senior” teacher, I completed changed the room. There were many tools and materials I found buried in the L&J storage closet.
Picture this..Walking into the classroom with crime scene tape on the entry door, the classroom is set-up in stadium seating. There are three large flags, the American flag, the official police flag, and the state flag, sits next to the judge’s bench.
We began a new student system along with small learning communities, so currently the classes are pretty much incorrect. My largest class is 19 students with 3 in internships which I have no place for them to go.
So besides the class concerns:
1. I implemented a bulletin board with my class rules on it, and I have the lab rules posted on the windows.
2. I posted College 411 poster throughout the class because we, CTAE, are now required to have students to log on and use the website.
3. I greeted each student and checked their schedule. I had only one student out of place.
4. I welcomed my students with a large stop sign for those gentlemen who pants were below their buttocks.
5. I added two to my advisory committee, interim Director of the public safety center, and Captain with the School Police.
6. I’m friendly, firmed, informative, and direct. One student stated he did not want to change because of me. (Awe!)
I could go on, but want. Today, was good day!
