My Students

The students at Dayton's Bluff are funny and creative. They love to be challenged and motivated to do their best. When they accomplish a new task they are so proud of themselves!

Sometimes they need a little extra motivation.

My goal for this year is to make sure that no matter where students go in the school they know they are valued and important. I also want them to value each other and know the importance of kindness. They are capable of amazing things. As a school it is our job to remind of that when they forget.

My Project

Help me give my students some inspiration wherever they go in the school. My goal is to put these posters in frames so they look nice and the students are reminded that our school's community is behind them. Currently the bathrooms and hallways in our school are nothing special they are just white walls. I want the students to walk down the halls and feel inspired and motivated to learn.

When students take pride in themselves they work harder and smarter.

After visiting other schools and seeing how excited the students got when new quotes were added to their walls I know that is something that can spark their interest and keep their creativity flowing.
