My Students

Benjamin Franklin said, "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." The scholars in my room are involved! They are involved in research. They are involved in collaboration. They are involved in creating. Engagement is at an all-time high! My students are amazing third graders that have a so much talent and creativity.

My students have a passion for learning and it shows in everything that they do.

Passionate about learning, these students enter the door eager to take on the demanding academic tasks of the day.

With new state standards, our students are being asked to think differently, process differently, and produce work differently. Yet with all this change, they are motivated. They are constantly asking challenging questions and working diligently to find the answers. This year's group of scholars is particularly interested in hands-on learning and being provided with technology and having multiple opportunities.

My Project

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on engaging activities! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Each child has the love of learning and success but have different challenges in achieving their goals.

Flexible Seating will grant my students multiple opportunities to find a comfortable spot, other than their desks to work. The stools will be used for small group instruction and the bean bag chairs will be a great addition to our sports themed classroom. What better way to grab a book, get comfy and read!

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group of students!
