Grades are posted in STI a couple times per week. Sometimes STI messes up, so please check it frequently.

  

Many assignments are placed in STI long before they are due so that you know about them. Watch the dates at the top.

  

Class rules are simple. I follow the Student Handbook; this covers nearly everything about rules and expectations.

 

·        Every student is given a copy of this the first day of school. Please read through it.

 

·        You can also find a copy on the Chilton County Board of Education website at: http://www.chilton.k12.al.us/

 

·        Please encourage your student to act and do right... it makes school a lot easier and a lot more fun.

  

I am an easy person to work with and am always willing to listen and help.

  

I want students to learn how to think on their own. It is okay for them to ask questions, differ with me on topics, and even respectfully debate with me. This is how critical thinking and in-depth analysis occurs.

  

I believe in giving respect to gain respect. I will treat you and your student the way I want to be treated.

  

I am extremely demanding and tough with assignments and school work because I believe ALL of my students are smart and have the ability to reach for their highest dreams. Sometimes it may seem that I overload on information… but I want them to learn and succeed!

  

I always try to present the practical application. It is nice to know why you are learning something and how it matters.

  

I am well studied in many different areas (literature, science, health, history and more) and believe in tying all things together – across the curriculum – to make things make sense and to bring a deeper understanding.

  

I follow and go well beyond Alabama Department of Education requirements. They can be found at: http://alex.state.al.us/

  

Let’s make this a great school year for you, your child, the school staff, and me. Please don’t wait until something becomes a big problem… contact me right away - and at any time - so that we can work through things early.

  

Thank you: Gerald Creel
