Please see me if you have any situations which may result in excessive tardiness or absences. If an emergency of situation occurs causing a delay (parking, alarm clocks, children, pets, life, etc.), please be respectful to others and quietly find a seat in the back of the classroom.

All assignments must be turned into me IN PERSON, there will be no assignments accepted via email or dropped off at the mail box. Make-up exams may be granted on documented emergency situations only. You must contact me within 24hrs. but all make up exams will be done the day of the final. Quizzes cannot be made up as we drop a quiz score.
