Welcome back (or in the first, to incoming Freshmen). In my classes you'll typically find a collegial, quasi-collegiate environment. At bottom, you and I are at Castle View for the same reason - to work. I fully expect and, in fact, demand, that you arrive with and maintain work ethic, respect for your peers and school personnel, and a desire to make of yourself a better citizen.
That said, work, ideally, is also fun. My classes are about conflict - geographical, legal, political, and social. These topics can flare tempers, but also facilitate fantastic conversation.
If you come ready to work, the fun (and the grade) will come.
