My Students

Do you remember wanting to be your own person in high school? You felt ready to take on the world. My students are feeling this now. They are individualistic and want to practice their autonomy any chance they get. I want to help them do that in the best ways I know how.

My students have been through a lot already - experiencing firsthand online school, and the benefits of coming to school in person.

They have found that their best learning is when they interact with each other. I want to help facilitate that learning and help them grow in their outlooks on life.

My Project

This project includes 1 high table and 2 high chairs to go with it. In this space students will be able to talk and work with each other on school work and life in general. After the past years my students have learned that one of the most important aspects of school they missed was the interactions with their peers. I try and add that piece of interaction into some of our class work.

Students love socializing, and gaining that practice in a learning environment can help foster respect and a growth mindset on various topics.

Making better socializing a part of our class culture will help students grow as learners and teachers in their own way. I hope this part of my classroom will help students help each other make the best decisions they can.
