My Students

My class is full of active learning! Each day, my room has multiple activities and projects going on. I encourage students to take ownership of their learning. We are a project based class, and I love to provide students choices to show their mastery in topics.

Our school is EXTREMELY diverse.

We are an international school, and students come from all socioeconomic backgrounds and ethnicities. We are located in the Energy Corridor of Houston which was heavily affected by Hurricane Harvey. One thing we share is the enthusiasm for exploring the unknown. We are very close knit and are full of caring teachers and students.

My Project

My 6th graders are extremely active! I love to encourage this movement in positive ways by letting them make many choices during class. Some of these choices include HOW they learn. This could be through choosing which activities they want to prove learning through, choosing projects that interest them the most, and choosing seating options that best fit their learning styles. I currently have tables that can transform to standing tables and have used yoga balls as chairs. I would like to provide my students with additional seating options to spark their excitement.

With the new headphones and seating options, students will be able to work comfortably and utilize technology in new ways.

Since Hurricane Harvey, I have made a conscious effort to be more in touch with the safety and well-being of my students. For some students, school provides the only sense of stability they have had lately. I want to continue providing my students the best education possible through continued personalized learning and choices.
