My Classroom Mission
Teacher Cadet: We are here to explore the teaching profession in order to see if it is a future career choice. We have to be positive, cooperate, attend, and prepare lessons for young learners. We will make it happen by listening, helping the cooperating teacher, interacting, taking the class seriously, giving 110%, being positive role models for children, being creative, and remembering that learning can be fun!
English IV: We want to learn about British literature and how to conduct research for our Graduation Projects. We will be prepared, have a positive attitude, attend class, stay awake, have mutual respect for each other, participate, cooperate, work together, and do our work. We will work hard to complete our portfolio and work on our oral presentations. Mrs. Sigmon will help us with this goal by teaching in fun, easy, and creative ways and tutoring us if we seek her help.
Spanish I: We want to learn Spanish I and the culture of the Spanish-speaking people in order to fulfill requirements for a four-year college and in order to move on to Spanish II. We will do this by listening, studying, working hard, staying focused, paying attention, participating, and being respectful. Mrs. Sigmon will help us with this goal by teaching in fun, easy, creative ways and tutoring us if we seek her help.
