My Students

I am privileged to teach twenty-four awesome second graders who learn best through project-based learning. At our charter school, we embrace our school's mission "Engaged Learning Through the Arts." Learning the core subjects must be combined with active learning so these students will be successful community members in the future. They are curious about every subject and eager to learn when their learning is hands-on and allows them the opportunity to make investigations and learn in new and innovative ways.

I work to inspire students to challenge themselves academically while embracing their creativity.

They love challenges to solve with cooperative learning and always look for ways to support each other's learning process. Due to the creative nature of our school, students need the flexibility of arts-based learning.

My Project

Flexible seating is an important part of the classroom. It allows students to make choices about where and how they will best learn. Last year, I started with only a few flexible seating options. I found that many students needed the option and I, at times, struggled to be able to provide that for them. The seating that I am asking for will help me to provide that option to more students which in turn, will help them to focus on learning.

As an arts-based school, it is important for students to have a choice.

I believe that letting students chose how to show what they have learned is important to demonstrate their learning. The building options chosen are ones that are currently unavailable in my classroom. I have no legos or tools to use to show force and motion the way that the marble run would.

I strive to have a highly engaged classroom where all abilities and ideas are embraced. I am asking for these supplies to better serve my students.
