New Summit Charter Academy is starting its second year in 2019 - 2020. The school is home to teachers who are wildly passionate about student success and showing kids that they are loved and valued. We are avkd about Capturing Kids' Hearts and believe that if students are loved and if they love school, they will be better prepared for academic success.
I love that New Summit values the family as a whole - we want to not only support each student, but recognize the importance of the family as well.
These students come from diverse backgrounds and many of them have bounced between multiple schools trying to find their niche. Some of our students have very specific special needs and.others simply needed a school with an approach better suited to their learning style. New Summit is a wonderful place for these diverse student needs.
As a brand new teacher it is my responsibility to ensure my kids have all they need to succeed and I am trying to build these resources up in my classroom. My first passion is to ensure that I help instill a love of reading in these students. I know that having appropriate books is so important. If a student is passionate about reading it increases their skill in the other academic areas as well.
These books will help me give my students interesting content and hopefully ignite a passion for lifelong reading and learning.
I hope to do read-alouds as well as other assignments to engage active reading (book reports, book discussions, journaling based on stories and themes, etc.)
