My goal, as the 8th grade teacher, is to prepare your child for high school. To achieve this, I hold him/her responsible for him/herself - the successes and the failures. We all learn from our mistakes as well as from things we do well; however, I want students to accept any consequences of their mistakes without placing blame on someone else.
