My Students

My students are the some of the most curious, enthusiastic and creative 5th graders who have not been successful in the traditional classroom. Many have struggled academically which leads to behavior problems. Therefore my students are attending an alternative, inner city school and 100% qualify for free lunch.

Our mission is to increase their academic success, modify behavior and improve attendance using individualized learning experiences that spark their imagination and creativity.

My students, or scholars as we call them, arrive at school everyday ready to learn. It is our responsibility to give them the tools and experiences to instill success and confidence.

My Project

The Creation Stations will allow for project based individualized learning for my scholars. Movement and indidualized learning will help my students gain confidence in their academic world. The first project will challenge my scholars to research and create 3-D model of Green Space.

Creation stations will allow for movement and project based learning which will increase student interest and academic success.

The comfy bean bags and new library books will encourage students to read and inspire their creativity. The headphones and cycle will allow students to research ideas and/or listen to curriculum websites. Magna tiles will allow math exploration using geometric shapes to build, practice math skills of area and use of scale. Use of graph paper will allow them to transfer their design into scale drawings. The art center will spark their imagination to create 3-d models of their drawings.
