I have the privilege of working with over 600 students and 30 teachers in grades K-5 each week. As the Innovative Learning Coach, I will work with a variety of grade levels each day, with different likes and dislikes, a range of abilities, and all of which are excited about the opportunities and activities I can provide them. They are inquisitive and curious, hardworking and determined. A high percentage of our students are English Language Learners, but there's always a classmate (or ten) who is willing to jump in and help out when one doesn't understand or needs some guidance. Some even try to learn a few words in their peer's language in order to communicate with each other.
