Office Hours: In the classroom after class
Part time instructors are not obligated to keep office hours; however,
I will remain in the classroom after class for 30 minutes or until the last student leaves,
whichever comes first!
Use your ECC email and put your section # in the subject line!
This is a better choice than email ~ Checked at least once every 24 hours!

VM comes to me via email-Worst choice of the three!
Hello Ms. Burruss,
I finally got my scholarship and I am so excited about it. This is my first scholarship. And that's thanks to you and making me realize how much opportunities are out there just waiting for us.
There are many things .....
You and your class were the motivation behind it. I've learned so much in your class and I am able to apply everything I've learned in real life! That's amazing!
I thank you so much for that.

Educational Plan Directions: Guidelines & Checklist
This document includes directions for making a counseling appointment. Worksheets must be completed before you make your counseling appointment!

Download: Creating a 6-Semester Ed Plan (Prezi)
The Power Point above is a big file and may take a while to download. This is a nice visual of what we'll be working on in class. There are some changes and updates to the form. I will go over this information in class, but it is good to review it before the lecture and Ed Planning workshop.
COUNSELORS ARE NOT AVAILABLE TO HELP YOU WITH YOUR PORTION OF THIS ASSIGNMENT! YOU MUST PREPARE IT BEFORE YOU GO TO SEE A COUNSELOR!
Note: The second example on the ed planning worksheet is missing some numbers and is out of sequence. For example Psych 9B might only be offered in the Spring semester. The attached PowerPoint will eventually be updated (or maybe not), but you may use it to help you create your Educational Plan as the general concepts are the same. Be sure to go to the Student Services Center to pick up the guide sheets for the college you plan to attend and your major, and use the Catalog to help with the courses required for your major. Remember to do your Ed Plan in pencil and meet with a counselor after you have created a plan on your own!
