FACULTY / STAFF
Hello! My name is Nicole Thomas and this is my sixth year teaching at St. James School. I graduated from the University of Iowa and went on to obtain my Masters in Education from National Louis University. I am the Math teacher for the entire fourth grade class. As an educator I strive to challenge my students and to instill a love for learning in each of my students. I love spending time with my nephews, my family, and my dog, Lily. I also love to read, travel, cook, and listen to music. I am a dedicated Cubs, Blackhawks, Bears, and Bulls fan!
As you know we will be giving the students time to complete their homework at school this year below are some frequently asked questions about our homework policy.
I didn’t finish my homework at school today, what happens?
You must complete your homework at home that night UNLESS your teacher has directed otherwise. It is then due the following morning.
I forgot my homework, what happens?
1 point is taken off the assignment and the assignment is to be completed at home that night.
When is homework considered late?
Homework is to be turned in first thing in the morning (preferably before the bell), otherwise it is considered late.
When is departmental (science, math, reading, social studies) homework considered late?
Departmental homework is due at the start of each departmental class.
I missed a day (or days) of school, how much time do I have to make up my assignments?
The amount of days missed will be equivalent to the amount of days given to make up the assignment.
