I encourage all my students to ask for help. If they are doing homework and get stumped, they should call a friend for help. But sometimes, they would just like to talk to me. I highly encourage students to call me on my cell so they can get some answers and be able to continue their homework. I feel there is not any advantage to getting frustrated, not getting it done, feeling vulnerable in front of peers, and feeling behind. I will gladly pause my personal life for just a few minutes to relieve homework frustration so a student may continue. Even if I cannot talk, I have a heads-up for the next day and can deal with the situation more prepared. Plus, it emphasizes initiative from the student. I strongly encourage and prefer students to contact me to foster responsibility and self-assurance. An email or call from a parent is best only if the student has no other way to fix the problem themselves or it is a "parental" concern. Thank you for your support as we guide the maturity of amazing 6th graders. Cell Phone (students only) (602) 510-6776
