My Students

Students at Soldier Hollow Charter School choose to come to our unique school for a variety of reasons. They themselves come from a variety of backgrounds. Here at SHCS we aim to provide our students with an engaging, active, outdoor and personal educational experience. In partnership with local state parks and our evolving campus, we provide placed-based learning experiences to all of our scholars. We are committed to small class sizes. Because of this our excellent students experience more one on one time with their teachers and develop strong bonds with their peers at school. During the Covid-19 pandemic we have been able, with our students, to be adaptive and flexible to continue to reach the goals and mission of our school charter. We are keeping learning engaging and rigorous for our students and they love it. Students at SHCS are resilient, respectful, curious and getting better every day.

My Project

We are really focused this year on reading progress and proficiency and helping our student make gains in reading. There are a great number of students who are struggling in literacy due to educational gaps incurred by COVID-19.

This iPad will allow me to monitor my students' reading progress, identify gaps in their learning, and target my instruction to best help them reach reading and literacy proficiency.

Reading is so critical to a students long term success in education and overall well-being throughout their life.

Please help me to support my students as I monitor their progress and proficiency in reading and literacy.
