Missed a deadline (and the late deadline) for a major term paper, help?

I assumed my paper was due the same day as my final, which was a novice error (I'm a freshman at a state university). I just figured out that the paper was not, and now I'm in a state of complete frazzle and stress because the paper is one of three things I must pass individually to pass the class as a whole.
Tips on how to email my teacher? I haven't had much 1 on 1 interaction with her but during lectures she seems pretty unforgiving and stern so my hopes for this email aren't the highest. I'm trying to find a way to emphasize the fact that I'm a dumb, dumb freshman learning the ropes but I'm not really sure how.
I'm definitely not expecting amnesty, here, but I'm still hoping for the best, but in the likely case my begging does not go through, any emotional advice for a freshman failing his first class?
