Computer lab is open for tutoring, make-up work, or independent study on Thursdays before school from 8:10 – 8:40, and after school from 4:00 – 4:45.  Check the class website for modifications to available times (this will be updated weekly).  Only students from my classes are allowed in the lab during tutoring times.

Discipline Management Plan

 

In order to guarantee you and all students in my classroom, the excellent learning climate you deserve, I utilize the Killeen ISD discipline plan in my classroom.  I believe all students can behave appropriately, and will NOT tolerate any student preventing me from teaching and/or any student from learning.
