My Students

The students at our school come from very diverse cultural, economic, and ethnic backgrounds. Our students thrive on challenges and love to be engaged in learning in dynamic ways. Our students draw on the arts, technology and health to enrich their learning experience. The teachers at our school believe each student can achieve greatness and is their own unique person. We strive to lead by example, academically, emotionally, and socially. We work to develop and maintain a safe learning environment inside and outside of the classroom.

Our students work together to solve real-world problems and develop life long relationships.

The teachers at our school work to provide learning opportunities that show them real world situations, problems, and healthy solutions through technology, primary sources, and community members/speakers.

Our students focus on developing compassion for different cultures’ religions, ethnic backgrounds, genders, and animals.

Our families are very committed to supporting their children and their social/emotional and academic success. We encourage family participation throughout the year with Family Nights.

Our inquisitive students will learn so much from this project.

My Project

Providing differentiated learning throughout the learning day can sometimes be a challenge. This variety of materials (puzzles, vocabulary and spelling activities and mind building games) will give my students the opportunities to work at their level, challenge themselves to go beyond, and reinforce necessary skills throughout our literacy rotations each day. These engaging and unique activities will foster independent and cooperative learning while I am working with small groups. The flexibility of these materials will give year long learning opportunities. Students will be able to practice and expand their skills, abilities, strategies, and independence daily. Center time is always awesome!
