My Students

Our school goes above and beyond to meet the needs of ALL students! We are recognized as a Blue Ribbon Lighthouse School and an Alabama Math, Science and Technology Initiative (AMSTI) School. We work closely with our regional AMSTI specialist, alongside our local school math and reading instructional coaches, to incorporate best practices.

My students are very motivated to learn and meet the high level of expectations that I set for them!

We are a low income school that relies heavily on donations to provide the necessities for learning. Our community and faculty is dedicated to caring for and helping our students succeed.

My Project

Our classroom is overflowing with books. We "Drop Everything and Read" throughout the day. Having a comfortable area to settle in with a good book makes all the difference. A large classroom carpet is just the perfect spot.

We also spend a lot of time collaborating and discussing as a group.

Students are partnered up and sit next to one another so they can "Turn & Talk" when posed with a discussion topic or question. A large carpeted area makes it easier to group together!

I consider my classroom just like a room in my own home. If it is warm and inviting-safe and comfortable-I believe my students will thrive!
