My Students

My students are awesome and eager to learn! We are a small charter school and don't have many of the resources that some of the bigger districts have. My English Language Arts students want to learn skills that can truly be used as they move forward in their education. They have a passion to be successful however, they need the proper tools to do so.

My students take their education seriously and excited about the possibility of having all the things they need to be successful.

Thank you,

Mrs. L. McCarty

My Project

The use of whiteboards in my classroom is imperative. It is one of the methods I use that allows students to actively engage in learning. They use the whiteboards to produce responses and share their knowledge. Using the whiteboards and the classroom set will contribute to the enhancement of my students learning tremendously. My students really enjoy being able to actively engage and interact instead of just sitting, listening. My students will also use these whiteboards to record information and respond to questioning during the reading of the class set of reading books needed for instruction in my classroom. This project means a lot to my kids and I as they take their learning seriously.
