• Disruptions in the Learning Environment
    Disruptions in the classroom rob other students of their education.  I do not tolerate disruptions.  Disruptions include out of seat when no permission was given, talking when a teacher is teaching or another student is sharing his/her thoughts, making sounds that distract other students, disrespect to adults, disobeying instructions, and being argumentative with adults. In life, there are always consequences to bad behavior.  There are consequences in my classroom as well.

    My consequences are:
    First offense:  First offenses are usually accidents.  A red cup will be placed on the student's desk as a visual warning.
    Second offense:  No longer an accident.  This becomes a choice made by the student.  The student will be relocated to the classroom timeout seat for the remainder of the class period.
    Third offense:  Indicates a lack of respect for others.  To prevent further disruptions of the learning environment, the student will be relocated to the timeout teacher's classroom (can be in 5th grade or another grade depending on severity of offense or relationship with other teachers).
    Continued offenses:  When a student chooses to disrupt continuously, he/she will be referred to the office Assistant Principal and a parent conference will be scheduled.

    I do retain the option to skip first and second offenses consequences if the student is disrespectful, argumentative, or maintains refusal to comply with basic and reasonable requests.
