My Students

My students come from a variety of socioeconomic, ethnic, religious, and academic backgrounds and come together to learn to be internationally minded. They have large aspirations, and it is my goal to help start them out on the best path possible for their future.

As a public International Baccalaureate school, we strive to create globally minded inquirers.

My students love when they are able to explore new concepts and construct their own meaning through purposeful discourse, making connections, and exploring material they are passionate about.

My Project

Feeling comfortable in an environment I choose always makes me more productive. Whether my options may be a comfortable chair, a couch, or even sprawled out on the floor, having a choice helps to add both accountability and a sense of freedom within the classroom.

My students deserve an opportunity to complete work in an environment that they find comfortable and will help them focus.

Students will have many options other than just a hard chair to work in, and a space that lends itself to individual work, partner work, or group work.

Providing my students with a carpet to sit on, exercise balls and floor seats will help them to understand that learning can take place in many ways and various places. Learning does not have to be uncomfortable and orderly - in fact, the best lessons are not.
