- Come to class prepared. This means every student should come to class with something to write on, something to write with, and a working calculator.
- Give me your best every day. I realize that the amount of energy may vary from day to day. Everyone has good days and bad days. Each of my students expects me to give them everything I have every day — I expect the same in return.
- Be respectful. I expect, and demand, that students show respect for themselves, their fellow students, and the course instructor at all times. Simple words like please and thank you go a long way toward maintaining a positive learning environment.
- Conduct yourself in a professional manner.
