Classroom Etiquette

Please arrive a little early before class starts so you are ready to teach on time and plan on staying until the end of your class for any student questions.  If you have an emergency that keeps you from teaching, please contact our office right away.  We will contact your students and schedule a makeup session for the missed class.

Please learn your students' names and use them.  This has a significant impact on student satisfaction.  Remember that most students come to Continuing Education class to have a good time -- if you have fun, they will as well.

Please leave the classroom in the same configuration (furniture, equipment) in which you find it.  Please report any computer, software or equipment that is not working as soon as possible. Lock the door when class is over.
