The Dean's Office is located in Room 112. Mr. Mike serves as the Dean of Student Behavior at TIES and has been in this role since 2013. Prior to that, he was both a 3rd and 4th grade teacher for 6 years at TIES. Ms. Hawo has moved to the Dean's Office in 2016 where she assists with the overall student behavior in addition to overseeing Transportation for our school. This is Ms. Hawo's 5th year at TIES.
The Dean's Office is a place where students will spend time if they having difficulties with their behavior. TIES has a Restorative Discipline philosophy, which places a learning model on behavior just as we would use for Reading, Math, and other subjects. If Mr. Mike or Ms. Hawo deem it necessary, they will contact families about behavior issues with students. These conversations will include what measures the school has done to help remedy the behaviors and what steps families can do at home to help as well.
TIES utilizes a PBS (Positive Behavior Supports) model for overall school behavior. Students receive rewards when they are demonstrating school expectations and/or going above and beyond the expectation to help make the school a better place. Following the Camel Code (Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible) and learning and applying our Terrific Traits (Self-Control, Friendship, Perseverance, & Empathy) are ways that students can earn rewards in our school.
