My Students

Students at my school come together from varied backgrounds, cultures, and abilities to create a beautiful community that we call home. We offer different learning experiences for students based on family interest, a student’s learning preference, best fit for achievement, happiness, and overall school success.

We have both self-contained Montessori and Gifted classrooms, as well as our mainstream classrooms, so we are able to meet a large variety of learning styles and student needs.

My students are curious about how the world works, and I try to foster that curiosity with thematic interest-based learning, project-based curriculum, and hands-on learning experiences.

Our library is a place where teachers, parents, and students can come together and explore the world and people of the world through nonfiction books and the joy of reading with the fiction books offered.

My Project

A comfy gathering space for students to create warm memories of our library will contribute to the love of reading and learning. Our expansive library has books that help keep their children at their cutting edge of reading and learning with a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction for reading enjoyment in between end-of-year testing or information seeking to finish their last paper or classroom project. At STCS with the Montessori philosophy at our roots, we believe as Dr. Montessori did that to support children’s optimal growth and development flexible seating is essential and this rug will help create a welcoming space with different seating options.
