My Students

My students are wizards and engineers. They believe in fairies and time travel. They imagine crazy animals and tell silly stories. My students are thirsty for books of adventure, science, and life experience. They are curious about love, cultures, and history. I have a noisy bunch of 6th-grade rascals who love to play, create, and learn.

They hope that their ideas will resonate beyond the walls of our classroom and run and create like nothing could get in their way, yet silently slink into pages as I read books out loud.

Home may be tough, family may be shattered, and previous schools may have pushed them down, but in my class we are committed to being playful and silly and learning bunches along the way.

My Project

The students are studying identity in the 6th grade. They are looking into their hobbies, interests, values, and experiences and adding it all up to answer the question, "who am I?" Through the process of unpacking all of who they are, students are engaged in the process of forging an identity.

Students will have the opportunity to plaster their own faces and create masks that represent who they are.

Traditionally, a mask is used to cover up a person's true self. We are throwing this idea out and encouraging students to share their hearts and their lives on masks to share with their peers rather than keeping their true selves bottled up inside.
