My Students

I am fortunate to be part of a school that strives for excellence. We meet students' needs in rigorous teaching strategies and expect only the best from our students.

My school is proud to be a "Leader in Me" school that works on taking author Steven Covey's 7 Habits, making them age-appropriate and working them into our school campus, so that students begin to see their campus as a way to show leadership.

The "Leader in Me" is not a curriculum, but rather a way of doing life on the school campus through awareness of how we learn and grow, and how we speak and treat one another.

Students learning the habit of solving conflicts, then becoming conflict managers is just one way the Leader in Me program, in action, on our campus looks like. Students take the 7 Habits that are taught to them and begin to think of ways they can take ownership of their campus through leadership. Whether it's a 5th grader helping a 1st grader to read, students setting goals and overcoming academic obstacles, or students seeing a need to clean their campus, are all ways that the 7 Habits teach students to lead.

My Project

State testing is coming soon, and for my 3rd graders, this is their first time taking the rigorous state testing. I have found that providing my students some snacks items motivates them as well as encourages them to start and finish strong.

I plan to offer the requested snacks of cheez-its, granola bars, and cereal bars after we finish our state testing each day, as well as during our snack recess.

This will also give parents one less thing to worry about during this state testing week.

In addition, some of the candy requested, MARS and HERSHEYS, will be used for activities to review for state testing. Skittles make a great way to form an array when reviewing for multiplication.
