Wrestling Coach

Magic the Gathering Club Sponsor

I've been teaching at Highland since 2008!  I absolutely love teaching mathematics! Every problem is a puzzle to solve. 

I am one of three Wrestling coaches. Mr. Rob Rajcevich and Mr. Adam Kimpler are the other two coaches.  If you're interested or on the fence about wrestling, come see me(Room109) or Coach Rajcevich(P.E. teacher) to talk about it.  Wrestling is a fantastic sport that really helps you understand your own abilities and builds self care responsibilities. 

I also am the sponsor to the Magic the Gathering club.  Magic the gathering is a trading card game that promotes critical thinking, creativity, and math skills.  If you don't have any cards, don't worry!  I have plenty to give you and get you started.  Come join us and listen to the announcements for info about the club.  It runs from October to the end of the school year.

Expectations

Homework

You will receive two types of homework.  Digital and paper.  All paper homework will always be given a due date, most likely the next day of class.  Digital homework (PearsonEasyBridge/Savvas) will always be due each week on Monday.  You will also turn in your written work for this on Mondays.

Late Work

If you do not have your work turned in when it is due, you will receive a zero for that homework until it is completed.  It is YOUR responsibility to turn this missing work in.  I will not bug you and ask you for it daily, but I'll try to give you friendly reminders.  Anything turned in AFTER a chapter is complete, will receive a 50% deduction.

Test Re-Do’s

With any test/quiz/project you are able to correct your mistakes and earn half-credit back, raising your grade.  The corrections must be right to earn credit.  To make corrections you must come into my room for Lunch and Recess the day after Mr. Crown passes back the tests.  You can ONLY make corrections during this lunch and recess time.  If you choose not to come in to make corrections then your grade will stay as it is.
