My Students

As a Special Education Teacher, Coach, and Athletic Director I try my best, on a daily basis, to meet ALL of my learners needs! NGMS is a Title I school, which mainly serves minority students. We have a wide range of learners, from the exceptional children to the academically gifted. Our school was built in 1967 and has a long tradition of hard workers and community pride! We have worked extremely hard the last few years trying to develop a learning environment that promotes movement and rigor, builds confidence and asks for exceptional effort!

My Project

MIDDLE SCHOOL! The magical three years of a learner’s life! My students have a hard time standing still, funny thing is so does their teacher! I would love the opportunity to tpick up where we left off in 17/18! Allowing them the opportunity to and more flexible seating to our learning enviornment! Staying focused on their daily learning and keeping their enthusiasm at the same time. We have seen the success with our current standing desks, but we need more flexible setting. My learners have showed some of the highest growth on standardized assessments in the entire school. The standing desk, Learn fit , and flexible seating are a great option that give my learners a change of pace from a traditional classroom setting! Lets continue the MOVEMENT for this school year!
