  • The Absolute Most Important Information in this Entire Syllabus

    Dear Students,

    You, the student, as a whole person, are my top priority as a teacher. Due to the rigor of this course, and the fact that you are often taking multiple rigorous courses on top of other school and community activities, a high degree of stress may develop. While stress is normal, it should never be suffocating. Your well-being matters more to me than any test score could ever mean. You should know that my door is always open to you and I am here to listen and provide as much support as I can. Just the same, parents should know that I am always available to talk. If the workload of the course becomes overwhelming, students should talk to me individually so that we can strategize about how to make things work while also accomplishing the objectives of the course. AP courses do not define who you are as a person, what type of colleges you will be able to get into, or you as a student.

    Sometimes, at absolutely no fault of our own, the weight of the stress and emotions in our lives become overwhelming. You have a right to feel mentally and physically safe. You should know that the adults in the school, including myself, our guidance counselors, and The Wellness Center are always willing to listen.

    However, if you do not feel comfortable talking with one of us, a few important numbers that you can utilize 24/7/365 are:

    ● Crisis Text Line: Text HOME to 741741

    Every texter is connected with a Crisis Counselor, a real-life human being trained to bring texters from a hot moment to a cool calm through active listening and collaborative problem solving.

    ● TrevorText for LGBTQ Youth: Text TREVOR to 1-202-304-1200

    TrevorText is a confidential and secure resource that provides live help for LGBTQ youth with a trained specialist

    ● The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1 800-273-8255

    A national network of local crisis centers that provides free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress.
