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 am first requesting books so that my students can do research before creating their Google slides presentations. The requested animal books will be used for students to research on animal habitats, predators vs. prey, and other criteria. The students will then create a Google slide presentation to report out their findings to their peers.

The requested marble genius will be used to design a story from their Google slides presentation on natural disasters.

My students will be given a specific disaster to research and report, one being Earthquakes. I look forward to using these Science books for my students to begin to learn the new Next Generation Science Standards while also using technology skills with their Google slides presentations.
