About me: Mrs. Lafon, Building A room #219
Hi, I am
Mrs. Lafon and I'm a Math teacher at Bowie H.S. I have been teaching
for 20 years, and I really love it. I believe that teaching is a 2 way
street, where 2 people have to work together for learning to occur.
job is to explain the material in as many ways as necesary, so that all
students understand it. I am available and ready to help students in
class, one on one, after class for tutoring, or through videos that I
will be posting of each theme we cover in class, so students can watch
them at home.
I expect my students to come to class prepared, work hard, participate, ask questions and do all their work. This is the only way to learn.
Students have a right to get an education, but with it comes the responsibility
of doing everything they need to do, to achieve it. A teacher alone,
cannot make a student learn, if he/she doesn't do his/her part.
Students are expected to do the following while in my classroom:
1.- Come prepared for class: bring something to write with and your notebook and be ready to work.
2.-Be seated and working on the warm-up when the tardy bell rings.
3.- Be respectful with others, use appropriate language (No swearing in class!!)
When I am giving instructions or explaining, please don't talk. Pay
attention and restrain from getting up from your seat or going to the
5.- If you have a question, raise your
hand, and wait until I can come and help you, Remember there are many of
you and only one of me. Please be patient, I will give you the same
attention I am giving the others.
6.- If you use any
classroom materials (scissors, glue, ruler, etc), please put it back in
its place, don't leave things lying around or on the floor.
At the end of each class, put your desk in line, put away your binder
and calculator and pick up any trash around your desk area.
8.- NO FOOD OR DRINKS!
9.- Be respectful to everyone in the classroom, and only use appropriate language, don't swear or use foul language in class!!
1.-Wear ID badge at ALL TIMES
2.-No Cell Phone use in the classroom.
3.-No hats, caps or head coverings in school.
4.-No sagging pants, spaghetti straps, low-cut blouses, short shorts.
5.-No public displays of affection.
