My Students

I teach 6th grade at a public charter school. Teaching 6th grade can be challenging as students are growing out of the "excited about school" phase. There are many things vying for students' attention other than my English and social studies class.

I want to create a space that engages and inspires students to learn and grow freely.

At our school students work to become EPIC Leaders, this stands for Empathy, Perseverance, Integrity, and Curiosity. Everything we do relates back to these norms and students strive to become EPIC, this is a huge honor! I want to reinforce these norms in my classroom, not only in my words and actions, but also in the classroom environment. I hope to use my classroom as a safe place where students' character and academic learning will flourish.

My Project

The mood of any environment is crucial to our success. These items will contribute to my 6th graders' work toward becoming EPIC. In 6th grade we study the hero's journey, I want to use these items to create an environment for study of EPIC heroes. Narnia will be the basis, with a wardrobe as our means of travel through history to study EPIC heroes. The lamps, rugs, and clock will all help create the backdrop for our time travel of heroes throughout history and literature.

I hope studying heroes like Lucy Pevensie (Narnia), Percy Jackson, Martin Luther King, and Malala Yousafzai will help my students unleash the hero within themselves.

To do so, I believe it is necessary to create an environment for students explore the traits of heroes, so that they can identify those traits within themselves and impact the world around them for the better.
