My Students

I have been teaching 12th grade English for many years. People often joke that I educate the spectrum of our seniors because I teach both the co-taught special education class and the concurrent enrollment college class. I say that I teach skills to students so that they are able to go out into the world and communicate successfully.

Communication, cooperation, citizenship, and critical thinking are the most valuable skills that my students learn their senior year.

Many struggle with the expectations of the final year of high school and the looming world. They question their place in society - the school, community, and beyond. About half of my students go to college and about half of those students are successful in their first year. Some students begin working before their senior year and they have difficulty keeping up with both work and school. They may not even see why they need to do both.

Most importantly, my students each find their way in the world because the teachers, the community, and the families have instilled a confidence in the young men and women that allows them to grow. And they come back and share their success stories!

My Project

I have begun to build a flexible classroom. These small tables will add a bit of stability. Students will have a place to write or set work or store things. They may use the Chromebooks here.

Students will have the opportunity to sit comfortably and move when they feel they need to move in order to collaborate effectively.

This is a great skill. Students may move the tables to be apart from peers when the time or work is right, as well.

The room is about options and these tables provide choices. The tables allow for responsibility and cooperation, too. By adding small tables to the flexible seating areas in the room, I give students something beyond the desk and attached chair. That is what they crave.
