My Students

My students are a fun group! They come into class each day and make my day just a little bit brighter. I love finding new ways to keep them engaged and learning in my classroom. They are all bright minds with so much left to learn. I am always on the hunt for ways to spice up the classroom to benefit them.

My group is diverse, and I place every effort possible into personalizing learning for them.

My goal is to keep each student engaged in learning and longing to learn more. Weekly, our grade level comes together to determine ways we can encourage our students to remain engaged in their education.

My Project

Emotions are high among our young minds these days. There's so much more going on in their lives than just having to come into a classroom to learn each day. Our scholars need their own safe space.

My goal is to provide my students with an area where they can go sit and think about their actions, situations that may be bothering them, or talk out their issues with myself or a peer.

Typically I have these students do this at a round table in our classroom. However, this table is also used for one of our workstations. I would like to create a separate area that is just for my students to 'collect' themselves. The rug and table submitted in this project will be used for those needs. Students are given 5 minutes in this area when it is deemed absolutely necessary. They are allowed to go to this area alone, invite me into the area to talk, or invite a fellow peer that they may not have been seeing eye to eye with.
