My Students

First and foremost, my class is made of 8 wonderful, vibrant, inquisitive, sensitive, and unique students. Each one of them brings their own sense of humor, strength, and (oftentimes) emotional challenges through my doorway each and every day. They just so happen to have one thing in common, challenging behaviors.

Students in my class, and school, belong to a 100% Free and Reduced Lunch School.

That means every student who walks in is provided with breakfast and lunch without cost. The students are so enthusiastic to learn and grow but need just a little extra boost. Students in my class learn so much better in smaller learning groups and being able to see real-life examples. In my classroom, LEARNING and GROWING are our two top priorities every day!

My Project

Students learn best from being able to see where they make mistakes and being able to learn from them. Using the technique, "My Favorite No", I anonymously present examples of students work to show what students did right and where we need to look again.

Being able to see real-life examples from members of their very own class makes a huge difference in students' understanding and learning experiences.

I love being able to see student faces light up when I use their work as an example. It teaches students that there is ALWAYS something to celebrate in our work (even if the end product isn't quite right) and that mistakes are part of the learning experience.

With COVID-19 forcing half of my class to stay at home this year, I want to be able to connect with them in their homes and show the work of their classmates, engaging them back into the real-life classroom. A document camera will allow this connection to happen, interweaving the classroom in front of me and that of my virtual world!
