My Students

Our school's fundamental approach to education is to foster character development through a small school environment with firm discipline and high levels of parent involvement. Our program gives children from diverse cultural backgrounds an opportunity to succeed at a high level, with enriching coursework and foreign language education from kindergarten through eighth grade.

Fourth grade is an exciting year for students and teachers because it is in fourth grade that children begin assignments requiring long-range planning, collaborating on group assignments, using research tools, and developing a real writing style.

Children in my classroom test their predictions as they study complex systems, and expand their study of social studies beyond the knowledge of our local community and into the realms of Florida history and government.

The atmosphere in my classroom is light and playful, to better support my bright, energetic fourth graders in reaching their learning goals. We enjoy releasing butterflies, dancing together, and growing together.

My Project

This biorb aquarium will provide a better living environment for our classroom fish, and will make the fish easier to see.

This will help provide a good model of proper pet care to the children, as they learn to be responsible, compassionate, pet owners.

Our current aquarium does not provide filtration, and is a quarter of the size of this aquarium. This will mean a big improvement in the quality of life of our pet fish, and will teach my students stewardship of living creatures as they see that we invest in the good care of animals, and show them love in the way that we provide for their needs.
