## About Me

**Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year. **

My name is Michael Herman, and it is my great pleasure to introduce myself as your scholar’s math teacher at Naples Classical Academy (NCA). I feel truly honored to be a part of the faculty and have the opportunity to teach 7th-grade pre-algebra and intensive math.

Before joining NCA full-time, I had the privilege of working as a substitute teacher at the school while continuing my prior career. Witnessing the dedication and passion of the staff, as well as the positive impact of NCA's program on my own children, convinced me becoming a full-time faculty member was the right path for me.

NCA's mission to "train the minds and improve the hearts of young people through a content-rich classical education in the liberal arts and sciences, with instruction in the principles of moral character and civic virtue" resonates deeply with me, and I am committed to upholding this noble mission in my role as a teacher.

My background includes a 26-year career in law enforcement, with over 19 years dedicated to serving the Naples community. For the last 12 years of my law enforcement career, I served as a police supervisor. Additionally, I have 20 years of experience as an instructor, teaching various standard and high-liability topics.

In my approach to teaching, I firmly believe in fostering a strong partnership between the individual scholar, their family, and myself. This collaborative effort is essential to ensure the success of each student. My promise to the scholars in my classes is simple but unwavering: "I will do all I can to help them succeed." In return, I expect scholars to meet me halfway by putting in the effort to succeed. Together, we can create a supportive and encouraging learning environment that brings out the best in every student.

I encourage open communication and invite you to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns throughout the academic year. Your involvement and support are vital in helping your scholar thrive in their mathematical journey.

Once again, I am truly excited to embark on this educational journey with your child and witness their growth in knowledge and character. Let's work together to make this a rewarding year for everyone involved.

Thank you for entrusting your child's education to Naples Classical Academy. I look forward to a productive and meaningful academic year.

Best regards,

Michael Herman

## Homework

**Homework Philosophy**

Let's face it, nobody **likes **homework.

Scholars do not want to think about school after 3 pm. As students, we were the same. Parents are already busy, so finding time to ensure their scholar has completed their homework adds more stress. Teachers, already busy with class prep and moving forward in the curriculum, need to review and grade the homework.

__So, why do we assign homework?__

Studies show learners retain about half of the information teachers provide in class. Therefore, homework reinforces classroom learning. For middle schoolers, there is a direct correlation between homework and overall academic achievement.

**Homework teaches students to: **

* take responsibility for their part in the educational process.

* work independently and improve time management skills.

* develop good study habits and life skills.

* think critically and have independent problem-solving skills.

**Homework Policy**

__Pre-algebra__: Scholars can expect homework about three times per week. The assignments will be equivalent to a one-page handout.

__Intensive Math__: Intensive math is a supplemental math class to assist scholars in developing core math skills. Scholars in intensive math can expect homework once or twice per week.

__Weekend Homework (All Classes)__: I typically do not assign homework for the weekend. The only rare instance would be if it is assigned as a review immediately before a text/quiz scheduled on the following Monday.

__Due dates (All Classes)__: From the Syllabus:

All assigned homework is considered due the next school day after being assigned. However, homework turned in by the end of the week it is assigned (Friday), will be accepted without penalty (point reduction).

__Lateness (All Classes)__:

Homework turned in after the last day of the week assigned will be reduced in grade by 10% for each day late.

Monday = 10%, Tuesday = 20%, etc...

Homework not turned in by the end of the week after assigned will not be accepted.

Absent scholars will be given one school day extension for each day absent to turn in assignments.

*All accommodations will be respected.
