My Students

Our school district's mission statement is, "Every student will graduate prepared for college, career and citizenship." We are a Pk-12 school and this mission starts with us.

My students are thinkers, writers, readers, mathematicians, super creative, and have a love for learning.

No two students are the same, and I am focusing on allowing more flexibility in my class. In my classroom, myself and another teacher teach Math and Reading AIS. We pull small groups at a time. We would love to allow the students to work where they are most comfortable.

My Project

In our classroom we want to create an environment that is inviting and comfortable. The students that we teach are working on Math and Reading goals that they may be lacking. In the small groups we are able to do more intensive support to catch these students up. I know that when a child is excited to come to a class they are willing to work harder. We want to give these students the flexibility to not sit at the traditional desk or U shaped table. We feel that this will allow students to be more willing to participate and in return GROW. We are looking to make a reading nook with a seat and shelves for our library along with comfortable seat cushions and chairs that they can use in a quiet place in the room. We will use the dry erase circles on the floor for the students to write important information or for math work.
