My Students

"Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow." - Anthony J. D'Angelo

My students are passionate about learning and are amazing kids!

They have a deep desire to learn and apply it to their daily lives. My students desire to use their creativity in productive ways that benefit their peers and school. Most of all they grave the balance of a well rounded education.

The students at my school have overcome many obstacles in their lives. Our goal is to help them develop the skills needed to leap over those obstacles in which they will encounter. We encourage a growth mindset and provide a safe learning environment that changes as the need of our students change. We provide many strategies for learning, as well as, creative learning environments that fit the demands of our changing world. Our families are supportive but lack resources, as many communities do.

My Project

My project entails changing the classroom landscape. Gone are the days of rows of desks and teacher at the front of the classroom. Today, classrooms are becoming collaborative learning and working places, where teachers are mentors and coaches.

Students have more control over their learning in regards to time, place, path and pace.

With that in mind, my project is one where I want to provide a flexible learning environment. I want students to have a choice over the type of seating and groupings they need to learn. In order to do this I need to employ alternative seating and working areas. For example, round tables, lowered desks, stools and floor cushions. My goal is to have a classroom that has a variety of work spaces that will meet my students needs.
