My Students

My students are enthusiastic, collaborative, and curious! They love to create and build knowledge with hands-on and real life experiences. I am excited to foster a community within the classroom where students in both second and third grade use teamwork and respect to learn from one another and grow to their greatest ability this year. Each scholar will be able to reach their goals through various learning strategies, academic choice, and flexible seating.

In this multi-age classroom, my scholars will not be limited by their given grade level, but instead soar to their great, individual potential.

They will continuously be provided opportunities to set goals, self reflect on what makes them most successful, and what they can control as a scholar. This will be a room where scholars champion one another, learn through engagement, and master through a safe environment to adapt through tries and mistakes.

My Project

This book case would be the finishing touch for our Back to School library! I would love to build book displays from my Diverse Learning Library and other books I already have in order to peak student interest and engage even the most unmotivated or discouraged reader, as quickly as the first day of school! My goal is to create an environment where every scholar feels championed as a reader, and this will help visually cheer them on.

These are key components to an interactive classroom where my students own their learning.

The book case will display themes reaching many different characters, cultures, and interests, or perhaps spark an interest for a book or genre that a student missed when browsing our library bins.
