My Students

My school is located on Gulf Coast of Texas near the border of Louisiana. We are a resilient community that strives for the best especially in education. I have seen my students work hard to learn all they can despite the struggles that many faced due to Hurricane Harvey in 2017. I want to provide them as many opportunities that I can to help them be as successful as possible in school. I am focused on preparing my classroom this summer for my new group of students for the Fall of 2018!

My goal for my students this year is to create a Balanced Literacy Classroom to help my students become lifelong Readers in and out of the classroom.

I am excited to open the minds of my sweet future students to the LOVE of Reading! I know that the love of Reading will open a world of KNOWLEDGE to them at the turn of a page.

My Project

I believe in flexible seating as a way to empower students with choice. Students who are given choices are more invested in their learning and are more apt to be engaged, excited, and driven to learn. By giving my students choices of stools, floor pillows and cushions and floor stadium seating, I am providing them with comfortable seating options for them to complete their work, learn, and collaborate with each other.

My students will be working daily with each other to further their learning, and flexible seating options give them effective ways to meet together as they learn around the classroom.

Flexible seating will allow students to meet together quickly as they share with each other and learn together. Flexible seating also provide students with a welcomed option to relieve their energy as they channel that into their learning. It provides students the environment they need to be their best. Students do their best when they are comfortable. As their effort increases, students will also have certain amount of pride that comes out in their work.
