My Students

If I could choose one word to describe the scholars in my building, I would simply state tenacity. The school that I educate in is located in an urban setting on the west side of Indianapolis. The student body here is very diverse and students and staff use our differences to teach each other daily. The students in attendance come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, to the extent that every student in the school receives free breakfast and lunch.

In order to stimulate the learning and to motivate academic excellence, students will have the opportunity to earn daily incentives throughout instructional time.

My Project

Scholars are introduced to a concept termed "no opt out". Scholars are taught that it is normal to make mistakes. Mistakes in the classroom are embraced and used as an opportunity to conceptualize misunderstandings in the academic environment. Scholars receive raffle tickets during classroom discussion and multiple attempts in answering checks for understanding, which lead to grade level mastery.

Students develop the stamina, grit and confidence to become independent learners.

Incentives in the classroom endorses school effort, leading to improved outcomes for scholars. Confident students develop the skill set to collaborate, critically think and problem solve with their peers, assisting students in preparation for diverse opportunities post-secondary.
