My Students

Our elementary school is located in the southeastern part of Butler County, Pennsylvania. Our town has grown a lot during the past 20 years. Starting with farms, a few restaurants, a grocery store, and a couple of gas stations, it is continuing to grow each day.

My classroom is also growing each and every day.

I teach 46 students with different ways of reaching their full potential. Each of my students needs certain adaptations to learn. Some students need privacy or silence in order to concentrate, while others may need to “fidget” in their seats. Scheduled breaks are needed for some of my students as well. Other students learn best with technology or movement.

Aside from being so very unique and different, my students all have one thing in common: the desire to do their best. Possessing the tools necessary for their individual success is all that is needed.

My Project

Positive reinforcement in the classroom has shown to be very effective throughout the last five years. Students are more encouraged to follow class rules and participate when they are recognized.

Exciting prizes promote positive behavior and hard work in our classroom!

The more of a focus on positive behavior, the more likely my students will enhance those behaviors. We use the treasure chest of prizes when students win a game, participate a lot, answer a challenging question or show a great deal of respect to others. Helping others is also encouraged and rewarded, especially when I do not have to ask a student to do so. These prizes will enable students to feel proud and rewarded. Some prizes are: Bouncy balls, stampers and more.
