Welcome to Studio F102! I am so glad you’ve chosen to come alongside us this year as we explore art through several different classes! Most of my time is spent teaching AP Art History, but I also have an Art History Seminar and an Art History Advanced class. Lots of work, but also lots of fun!
Depending on the university you’re joining us from, you certainly will have expectations that need to be met for you to graduate. Be aware that you are responsible for those requirements. I will do my best to provide you with whatever feedback, guidance, and mentorship that is required of me as well. That being said, if you need something specific from me, please inform me in a timely manner.
Dress appropriately for the high school classroom; there will be days when the dress code is more relaxed, but remember, we are professionals. If you have questions about this, please let me know.
When you begin to teach lessons, I would like copies of your plans/outlines before the beginning of the week to ensure we’re on the right track. It’s not my intention to make you nervous but to help you be successful during your time here at CHHS. I’ve taught for 14 years, including through a pandemic with distance learning, and I understand how intense student teaching can be.
Class begins at 8:40am, but it’s always best to arrive early. Next year we are on an 8 class a day schedule.
If you will be out for classes or are ill, please be courteous and inform me in advance. There is nothing wrong with being sick; it is just nice to be informed so I can adjust accordingly.
I know this is a lot of information, but I’m excited that you’re here, and it is going to be a great year!
