My Students

Our classroom is a safe place for students to come and know that no matter what is going on in their life, it is a place where they will feel welcomed and accepted by everyone. The class is a mixture of general education students, special education students, and students in need of Academic Intervention Services (AIS). These students come from a variety of economic backgrounds which means that the students come to us at many different levels. Our classroom design and learning experiences help students develop tolerance for people from all walks of life. Creating a positive and aesthetically pleasing learning environment contributes to the success of our students.

My Project

In order to create a positive culture, my teammate and I spend a great deal of time throughout the year doing team building activities. We have very few items that we use for these activities, but could really enhance the students' experience with more resources.

Creating engaging, hands-on, fun opportunities for students will help to build an environment conducive for high student achievement.

The pinnies will be used when playing team games such as kickball. The poly spots can be used for a variety of problem solving activities which teaches students how to collaborate and also helps them to build trust in each other. Help us make this dream a reality for our students!
