I believe I am here to serve the students, to challenge them, facilitate them and hold them accountable for the class learning objectives. Students deserve my best effort. I will come prepared. In turn, I expect a best effort from the students. I expect students to exercise self-discipline by reading the text, turning assignments in on time and actively participating in class activities.
