My Students

I teach three different classes at my middle school. In my Read 180 class, students receive intensive reading intervention in a small class environment. They are all reading below grade level. Many are special education students or second language learners. They must give up a fun elective to be in my class.

I also teach three sections of College Prep English.

My classes have a high percentage of boys and many students have IEPs or 504s. I have several students with autism and ADHD.

Finally, I teach a new class that I created called Creative Writing. The class is a workshop environment where students publish their work on our blog, enter writing contests, and even write scenes for our drama students to perform. We often meet in writing groups to get feedback on our writing.

My students come from diverse backgrounds, which is one reason I love teaching at my school!

My Project

My students deserve an inviting, comfortable classroom! They love the flexible seating that I have already implemented in my classroom. I have yoga balls, floor seating, yoga balls, and more! I would like to add another bar height table and bar stools to the back to provide students with another seating choice. This type of table also gives students in the back a better view of the front of the room.

When implementing flexible seating this year, I asked students for feedback as to what they would like to see.

I made their requests my priority. This is THEIR classroom too!
