Welcome! I would like to welcome you and your child to Summit Hill Junior High School, My name is Tina Yiakos and I will be your child's Communication teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. The following information is a guide to my class goals, objectives, and expectations.
In my philosophy of teaching, I want to first create an environment that is safe and secure so the students are able to trust and work towards their full potential. I also want to motivate and challenge my students by creating a stimulating environment for them.
Students will be able to:
1. Follow and apply the writing process to write effectively in various forms and types of writing.
2. Develop and apply effective skills for speaking for a variety of audiences and purposes.
3.Communicate effectively in a public setting.
4 Engage in differentiated activities designed to strengthen presentation skills.

I look forward to having a successful and exciting school year.
IN ORDER FOR YOUR CHILD TO PROGRESS WEEKLY AND BECOME A CONFIDENT SPEAKER, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PRACTICE THEIR SPEECHES WITH THEM AND GIVE THEM CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM.

WELCOME BACK SPARTANS!! Just a reminder that all my lesson plans are aligned with the new COMMON CORE STANDARDS. Please note that the information in the downloads list is a tentative schedule; therefore, assignments can be rescheduled.
* STUDENTS ARE ALLOWED TO REDO A SPEECH IF THEY RECEIVE A D OR F. THEY MUST SEE ME IMMEDIATELY AFTER CLASS TO RESCHEDULE AND FROM THERE THEY WILL HAVE 2 DAYS TO PRESENT. THEY WILL PRESENT DURING MY ADVISORY CLASS. IF THEY FAIL TO ATTEND, THE ORIGINAL GRADE WILL REMAIN THE SAME.
Please check Power School on a regular basis. Look at symbols for "missing" or "late" assignments. Please note that re-assessments are taking place this year. It is mandatory that students who receive D's or F's on assessments re-do them. Students who receive A's, B's or C's may request to re-do assessments, but only receive one "re-do" per quarter. In either case, the appropriate paperwork and assignments must be completed and turned in. The most recent grade, for better or for worse, will be taken.
