Welcome to my webpage. This is my 34th year of teaching and 33rd year of teaching at Destrehan High School. This year I will continue to teach employability skills through our retail outlet on campus,known as the DHS Bookstore.
Parents, please feel free to call me if you feel I may be of help to you or your child. I can be reached by calling 764-9946 or by email at :email@example.com.
Below is my letter to parents given to my students on the first day of school:
I will be instructing your child this term in the Transitional Employee Sampling Customer Service class (Bookstore).
Students in this class will work in and operate the D.H.S. bookstore which sells various school supplies, P.E. uniforms, dance and football tickets and balloon bouquets. This vocational training class will incorporate the use of marketing skills, functional math skills, social skills and communication skills to prepare students for job readiness.
Daily grades will be given using a performance- based checklist. Various vocational skills will be addressed on the checklist according to student’s particular strengths and weaknesses.
Class performance and good attendance are vital to your child’s success. Please encourage both of these at home.
At Destrehan High School we take a Restorative Approach to discipline. Our primary focus, in conjunction with teaching and learning, is to build positive and working relationships. My discipline management plan will be consistent with the following restorative action steps:
- Remind – students will be reminded of rule(s) or directions
- Redirect – students will be specifically redirected to the task at hand
- Relocate – students will be relocated to either reflect upon (mis) behavior, calm down, or removed from a potentially disruptive situation (If necessary)
- Reflect – students will be guided to reflect upon what happened, what could have prevented the situation, and how to make amends to the appropriate parties (If necessary)
*Further or more severe consequences may be assigned if disruptive behavior continues or for more serious incidents/offenses
Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by calling D.H.S. (764-9946). If you call and I am not available to come to the phone, please leave a message.
I look forward to working with your child and having a great year!
