My Students

I've yet to meet my second graders for this upcoming school year, but every year I look forward to seeing their bright eyes come into my classroom on the first day of school. Second grade is my favorite because they have learned so much in Kindergarten and 1st grade, and they have so many skills to apply and explore deeper in second grade.

I want to create a warm classroom environment that allows students to work comfortably and flexibly, having a choice that best promotes their individual learning.

Our school is a Multiple Intelligences school which means we recognize the eight different ways that students learn best. Upon learning each student's area of strength, we teach to that specific intelligence to ensure information is received as appropriately as possible. In addition, we celebrate diversity, teach acceptance, as well as place a high significance on social emotional learning.

My Project

Whether it be an abundant classroom library or a variety of flexible seating, I want to give my students the choice of learning in the most individually appropriate way.

When students come into our classroom each day, I want them to be excited and passionate to learn.

Our classroom will be more than just a classroom, it'll be our home away from home.

A variety of seating options will give students a choice that works best for them. Additionally, our classroom rug is frayed and has clearly seen many years of students. A bright new rug will tie our classroom together in a rejuvenated way.
