Alisa Parsons


I currently teach AP Psychology, AP US History and AP World History at Hayward High. My favorite part of teaching is working with students and attempting to generate interest in subjects that are not normally a favorite to most high school students. It is truly exciting to watch their interest grow as they start asking questions about current and past events. I expect students to actively participate in ALL classroom activities (notes, lectures, projects, discussions, etc.) and maintain the highest academic expectations for all of my students. I will provide them with the necessary support and instruction in class for them to reach these expectations and hope that you can help support and encourage that at home as well. I offer students office hours to come see me and ask questions, make up late work, or talk about grades Monday - Friday at Lunch or they can schedule an appointment with me for after school.


I strive to have updated grades posted for students weekly with the exception of large projects that may require more time for me to grade. All student grades are accessible to students and parents using Infinite Campus. If you do not have a log in, I encourage students and parents to use my homework calendar on this website and infinite campus to keep track of grades. 


Students will be given quizzes on Friday to test the content we covered during the week. There will also be comprehensive chapter tests given every 1-2 chapters (roughly every month). Students can also expect 1-2 homework assignments a week and homework on the weekends. Homework should be turned in at the beginning of class and will be considered late if it comes to me after that time. There is a penalty for work turned in late, so students need to be responsible for getting assignments completed on time. Assignments have been added to the calendar well in advance, so if an unexpected absence happens, students are still expected to complete the work that was assigned/due and turn it into class the next day they attend. 


Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I can respond much quicker via email if you need to reach me -
