Respect ~ Appropriate Language

Why? Why is it important to not use offensive words in class? We, as teachers and a school, are preparing you for the world. It is not appropriate to use words like "gay", "fag", "queer", "retarded" and so on in class or any other words that offend another person's race, nationality, religion, gender, class or so on. It is my job as a teacher to provide a learning environment that is peaceful, conducive to learning and sharing, a place where all feel welcome and where all students are respected. Please respect yourself and others by refraining from using offensive words, even in jest. Thank you for honoring my classroom and your classmates.

Thank you,
Ms. Burnell
