My Students

My school is located in Hampstead, NC. We are part of an amazing, coastal community that was severely affected by hurricane Florence. We are continuing to recover, and every day gets a little bit easier than the last for our families. We have a diverse group of talented students with varied interests.

I teach reading, writing, and social studies twice each day.

During this time, we follow a co-teaching inclusion model with an EC teacher pushing into the classroom. We focus on guided reading and writing, reading stations, small group instruction, and hands-on learning experiences while integrating technology.

The students I teach range from students with individualized educational plans, 504 plans, general education students, and academically and intellectually gifted students. It is an exciting challenge to teach such a wide range of young learners in a dynamic learning environment.

My Project

This project will help to truly make our classroom one which empowers children to take charge of their learning in an environment where they are comfortable. One goal I have, as a teacher, it to create a space that students look forward to, and want to be in. A space where learning that is conducive for students to feel safe and to learn.

With the addition of six K'Motion Stools, four Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seats and Five Soft Seats, children will have three new seating options to collaborate, work in small groups or with partners and work throughout the school day in a space other than traditional desks or tables.
