My Students

At AFES, our students are the best of the best. Coming from a variety of backgrounds, students work together to create a caring school culture focused on safety, respect, enthusiasm, acceptance and responsibility.

Together, staff and parents are committed to the mission of preparing the students for a successful, productive and purposeful life.

We believe that every student is unique and can learn. While at our school, students become self-reliant, independent thinkers and problem solvers while learning to respect themselves and others.

As One Team, we will listen to, trust, respect and collaborate with students, parents, and members of our community. With One Goal in mind, we will do everything possible to reach all learners as we see No Limits in a child's ability to achieve success. We believe in making every day count and emphasizing partnerships to support individual achievement. At AFES, we are "One Team, One Goal, No Limits!"

My Project

This past school year, I had the opportunity to become my school's Social Emotional Learning Specialist. In this class, I use explicit instruction to build self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, as well as relationship and responsible decision-making skills. Using a combination of the Second Step Curriculum, Mindful Schools Curriculum, and Yoga 4 Classrooms, students are guided through discussion about the competencies, learn why they are important, and develop healthy strategies for growth in these areas.

Adding Just Kidding Around Yoga teacher training to my repertoire, will allow me to better meet the needs of our youngest learners, making mindful movement practices more engaging and fun!

According the to the Kidding Around Yoga website, "OKAY is an integrated approach to kids' yoga teacher training that will prepare you to teach not just asana, but games, activities, deep relaxation, meditation and so much more. When you are done with this fun and engaging training, you will be fully prepared and certified to teach Kidding Around Yoga classes."

I can't wait to integrate this fun, new, dynamic program into our learning plan!
