My Students

My students are very inquisitive, compassionate, and fun learners. They are hard workers who love learning. In the classroom, we use many different styles of learning as all students learn differently. We are a Title I school. We are in the heart of the area most recently affected by Hurricane Florence. My students are still searching for normalcy after a horrific tragedy. A large portion of the students that attend my school suffered great damage due to the flood water from Hurricane Florence.

As we continue to regain normalcy at our school, students enjoy challenging learning that allows them to use inquiry and problem-solving techniques.

My students spend their day learning through mini-lessons followed by group rotations. These rotations allow me to provide each student with a strong learning touch. After small groups, we as a class reconvene to discuss and bring closure to the lesson through collaboration.

My Project

This project will help my students learn through comfort and fun. Students crave learning that is meaningful and fun. In my classroom, I teach students in small groups to make sure learning is personalized to the needs of the individual student. With flexible seating, students will be able to learn in the least restrictive environment. Students are able to learn and get their wiggles out at the same time. With the Human Body Model, students get an upclose look at the bones and muscles in the human body.

With the behavior incentives, I plan to teach students how to follow rules and expectations, students will receive tangible rewards in return.

Positive reinforcement is an important part of the day because when students are rewarded for positive behaviors, it prevents negative behaviors. Positive behaviors must be taught, my teaching practices include teaching positive behavior, as rigorous as other subjects such as Math, Reading, Science, and Social Studies. All of these materials will significantly enhance the lives of my students through positive experiences that have the power to last a lifetime.
