My Students

We are a neighborhood school serving kids who have grown up together from an early age. Our school is encouraging students to take ownership of their own learning by encouraging them to not only be academically capable, but also to be "future ready" and contribute as "thriving citizens"in our community. These students are learning about the Four C's of life: collaboration, critical thinking, communication, and creativity as a way of shaping their education.

At Our School, we use the 4 C's in order to prepare students for careers that haven't even yet been created.

We know that the workplace is changing rapidly due to innovation in technology and global needs. These students are getting a head start at preparing for their future.

My Project

Forbes Magazine reported that the essential skills employers look for in new hires includes collaboration and problem solving (including the ability to plan and prioritize tasks.) It is the responsibility of teachers and schools to provide students with the experience they need to be prepared for their future. The traditional classroom setting no longer meets the needs of all students.

Creating an open-concept classroom will allow students to take ownership over their learning and work styles by encouraging them to find a workspace that best suits their needs.

This style mimics open-concept offices found in many innovative corporations. Students will also learn to exercise responsibility in choosing where they work. This responsibility leads to higher levels of engagement and classroom participation.
