My Students

My students are amazing individuals that work hard every day to learn and grow! In our classroom we focus on demonstrating respect, responsibility, and safety every day because we know that character counts!

My students are learning how to take charge of their own education.

Each day in our classroom students decide where to sit based on what works best for their learning. My students and I collaborate with each other about what successful learning looks and feels like and how to be the most successful learners possible.

My Project

My fifth grade students are learning to take charge of their own education! Part of taking charge of their education is knowing where and how they learn best. Some students learn best sitting at a table on a stool, others learn best using a lap desk on the floor.

My fifth grade students work hard everyday to demonstrate respect, responsibility, and safety in our classroom and throughout our school and are given points when they do that they can spend in our classroom store to purchase mechanical pencils, erasers, pencil toppers, key chains, colored dry erase markers, and other fun items.
