Archer, Semiko » Introduction

Introduction

Dear Parents,

I'm excited about the upcoming school year. I will be teaching your son/daughter concepts and/or processes associated with Business Education.

Introduction

My name is Semiko Archer and I am a mother of two, a son age 20 and a daughter age 17. This is my 5th year teaching; prior to teaching, I was an administrator with the Georgia Department of Corrections for eight years. After experiencing our youth enter the justice system at such an early age, I decided to focus my attention on building relationships with our youth via the school system and become an Educator. I truly believe that teachers can make a huge difference in our students' lives through various channels. 

It is my goal to provide all students with an educationally challenging, yet fun experience in my classroom. This course is designed to be taught in a 18-week rotation in 70-minute daily classes. I have attached a copy of my classroom syllabus that includes course description, course objectives, student expectations, consequences, classroom rules, commutation and grading policy. I have also attached the standards for each grade level. 

I am asking for your help to maintain those expectations by checking with your son/daughter periodically to make sure that his/her work is being done. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 706-554-3532 or sarcher@burke.k12.ga.us if you have any questions or concerns during the year.

Thank you

Ms. Archer
