My expectations are fairly simple; I am an educator, students come to me for an education, therefore I expect the full participation and devotion of each and every one of my students. If you are having a hard time getting "into" it, I expect you to raise your hand and tell this to me. As your educator, you can expect me to take this comment seriously, and you can expect me to change my method of instruction to one that "works" for you. All I then expect from you, in return, is to give your best effort in class.
Come to class, come to class prepared, come ready and willing to truly learn, and let me handle the rest.
