My Students

As a former graduate from this school district, I could not wait to begin teaching here. I worked as a substitute teacher for two years and have now taught here for four years. My school district is very small, but we are a completely Title I district. This school year, I have a set of Chromebooks in my classroom, but I am used to providing most things for my students including basic supplies.

I have students who are very passionate about learning and moving on in the world.

Many students come from broken homes. They are sometimes homeless, and they sometimes come to school hungry for knowledge and even food. I try to provide my students with an opportunity to take charge of learning at their own pace using a semi-flipped classroom model. I record lessons or find lessons online for them to complete at their own pace. My students perform well on school assessments and that contributes to my science department being the department with top scores so far this school year.

My Project

Interactive Notebooks are a great way for students to keep their notes organized for class. In my Science Class, 80% of what we do goes into our interactive notebooks.

I have colored coded topics that match my topic posters in my classroom to help students stay organized.

Each student uses a 100 page composition notebook and it gets pretty full by the end of the year with notes, foldables and many cut and paste activities. As I continue with this next year, I plan to make it better and better. My students have come to appreciate the color coding and really make the Interactive notebook their own. Please consider donating for the 2018-2019 school year.
