Taught middle school for 3 years.<br />This is my 8th year at VRHS. <br />I am from Hollywood, Florida. I lived there until 1996.<br />I have 3 kids. A 19 yr old son, a 16 yr old son, and an 8 yr old daughter.<br />My favorite places are Disney World and the beach.<br />All about Mrs. Stassie<br />
I expect my students to be respectful to me and their classmates AT ALL TIMES. <br />I expect my students to be prepared every day. Have your notebooks, textbooks, etc.<br />I expect my students to ASK me for help if they need it. <br />I am really nice and honestly do care about you and your learning, so PLEASE ask me if you need help.<br />I will be at school until 5 most days, so come after school if you need help or to complete make up work/tests.<br />My Expectations:<br />
You’ve been in school for 12-13 years now, so you know the basic rules (I hope). <br />There are NO food or drinks allowed, except for bottled water. <br />TARDIES will not be tolerated, we have too little time to cover too much material.<br />1st tardy- warning<br />2nd tardy- after school detention <br />3rd tardy- parent contact<br />4th tardy- write up<br />SHENANIGANS- I like to laugh and have fun but we have a lot of work to do. We will have some good times, trust me. <br />TALKING OUT- This is a pet peeve of mine. When I, or anyone really, is talking, it is inappropriate for you to shout out or talk. I find that to be very rude. <br />CLASS RULES<br />
This is a REQUIRED class that you must pass to graduate, this is the LAW.<br />There is an EOCT that counts for 20% of your grade. <br />You NEED to take some responsibility and prepare for this test. <br />I WILL prepare you for this test but you need to meet me half way and do the work.<br />It is imperative that you keep your average at AT LEAST a 75 to ensure you will pass this class. <br />You need a three-prong paper or plastic folder. THIS IS A REQUIREMENT. <br />No three ring binders will be permitted.<br />ECONOMICS<br />
Read your notebook guidelines that I gave you with your syllabus.<br />The FIRST page must be the Table of Contents. <br />I will keep a running TOC on the board and on my webpage.<br />VOCABULARY:<br />Each chapter begins with the vocabulary. You MUST do the vocab. for each chapter I assign. It may NOT be typed (sorry, too many cheaters)<br />WORK:<br />This will go in the notebook behind the vocabulary for that chapter. Again, just refer to the TOC if you get confused. (or ASK)<br />The NOTEBOOK<br />
I will collect notebooks before tests. If you are missing any work still turn in your notebook and I will note it on your TOC. <br />When you turn in your notebook the next time, if you completed your missing work put a note/star next to it on the TOC so I know to check it and give you credit.<br />PLEASE do not mess up your notebook. If you don’t turn it in you end up with zeros on each chapter I was grading. <br />People have failed and not graduated because they didn’t do their notebooks. <br />Notebook <br />
Make up work:<br />If you are out, look at the board for your make up work. <br />Also, look at my class web page (found by my name at VRHS’s school web site).<br />Check with a class mate.<br />Make up tests will be taken within three days (or so) of the test. This can be done before school, after school or some time during school.<br />Miscellaneous items<br />
