My Students

I am fortunate to be part of a school that strives for excellence. We meet students' needs in rigorous teaching strategies and expect only the best from our students.

My school is proud to be a "Leader in Me" school that works on taking author Steven Covey's 7 Habits, making them age-appropriate and working them into our school campus, so that students begin to see their campus as a way to show leadership.

The "Leader in Me" is not a curriculum, but rather a way of doing life on the school campus through awareness of how we learn and grow, and how we speak and treat one another.

Students learn the habit of solving conflicts, then become conflict managers, is just one way the Leader in Me program in action on our campus looks like. Students take the 7 Habits that are taught to them and begin to think of ways they can take ownership of their campus through leadership. Whether it's a 5th grader helping a 1st grader to read, students setting goals and overcoming academic obstacles, or students seeing a need to clean their campus, all are ways that the 7 Habits teach students to lead.

My Project

I found this online course that is geared toward helping teachers use technology with storytelling and project-based learning. My students are pretty good at responding to a writing prompt on their Chromebook. But, I would like to start doing project-based projects on their Chromebooks; working with their groups and coming up with projects such as story-telling. This course helps teachers learn about utilizing Google Education apps that provide students the opportunities to work their peers on producing a final group product. I know this course will have student learning higher order thinking and high student engagement. I look forward to learning ideas of project-based with authentic investigations. I would like to apply this in the classroom right away with some digital storytelling from our leveled readers in Language Arts. Students can create a digital project-based story on their Chromebooks and share it also with their peers in order to have collaboration and a final group product to share with the class.
