My Students

We are dragons! Our children are sweet, bright, and full of potential. We have a wide range of students with diverse learning needs, and teachers who really care.

In our classroom we have all different learning styles.

Some are silent thinkers, some are expressive thinkers, some are writers and others are visual learners.

All of our students enter with their own unique learning styles and exit with valuable experiences, life lessons, and new academic findings.

We teach children to read, solve problems, create, experiment, and learn to socialize every day so their futures can have endless opportunities.

My Project

Our first unit of study for the year is community. We teach complex language and learn about important landmarks and people. I would like to incorporate engineering to our unit. Let children create local bridges, buildings and automobiles. Start conversation about their creations and allow for a deeper understanding of community. I would like the children to enjoy the unit and be able to have as many resources available to them for engaging in unit being taught. Different stools, organized bins and new building materials will allow students create what they imagined and duplicate what they see. It will make their classroom a place they love to go.
