Dear Lake Weir High School Parents/Guardians and Students:
I am very happy to join the Lake Weir High School this 2019-2020 school year and for the privilege to teach my favorite subject, Biology!
I believe my life and professional experiences have provided me with a unique life perspective. I have high expectations of myself both personal and professional. I also hold my students to high expectations. There is no circumstance or subject that can't be overcome without hard work (responsibility), grit, and PERSEVERANCE! I am a firm believer that the best predictor of success is personal drive. Like it is depicted in the movie "Stand and Deliver" students need to have "ganas" (translates to wants or will). It is my hope that my instruction/facilitation will inspire students to seek the path to success! I am committed to providing them the academic knowledge they need to achieve high scores in all their Biology course assessments and to champion their academic and personal growth.
Every student needs a champion! I encourage parents/guardians to support your students! I promise on my end to champion your student academic and personal success! All classwork & homework can be found in the Google Classroom. In our classroom, your student will be exposed to technology as they will be assigned a classroom Chromebook to complete daily classwork. Google Classroom and their Biology E-book can be accessed through their Marion County Public Schools desktop/portal using your home computer or phone. Please read the Biology Syllabus for information pertaining:
- Course description
- Tardy Policy
- Reaction Papers
- Laboratory Reports
- Semester Exams
- Laboratory Conduct
- Grade/Grading Categories
- Note to Parents
- Daily Routine
- Class Rules
Your student will also be bringing home a Biology Course Master Schedule and a Laboratory Safety Rules and Behavior Agreement that will require both student and parent signatures. Students will not be allowed to participate in labs if they do not turn in agreement and they will receive a zero for the lab classwork and lab report.
We are a GOOGLE CLASSROOM which means all classwork is available online. I encourage parents to have students show you the page! If you would like to receive Google classroom updates, please send me your preferred email contact. Students can access their Google Classroom via the Marion County Public Schools Portal under PROGRAMS. The Google Classroom will be up and running starting Monday, August 19th, 2019. Each class period has a distinct code. Parents, please provide your email information to receive the Google Classroom invite that will help you keep track of your students daily work.
If you have any questions or concerns you can reach me via email at Ivonne.Crespo@marion.k12.fl.us.
Stay tuned for more information in your GOOGLE CLASSROOM!
