My Students

The town where I teach is very unique. We have students who come from all over the world due to military connections, as well as some who were born and raised right here. My students are all of mixed abilities, cultures, and backgrounds which makes it so exciting to have the opportunity to learn from them myself!

It is my hope that my students, who come from all corners of the country, have the opportunity to learn and thrive within the walls of my classroom.

Seventh grade is such a difficult yet exciting time in a students academic career. Not only are they getting to learn about themselves as individuals, I truly believe that they are all learning how to be cooperative learners at this stage in school as well. As I get to know each and every one of them, I am excited to help them figure out what their passions are and how my class can help develop them.

My Project

Students grow tired of sitting at a desk all day. Flexible seating will pay a big part in the unique learning environment that students will experience when they are in my class.

I am seeking these floor cushions and foam tiles in order to provide a collaboration space for my students.

I believe that students in my class are learning much more valuable skills than the core subjects - they are learning how to work with their peers. Students, through the use of the academic content, are developing priceless skills by discussing, interpreting, and inquiring with eachother. My plan is that by providing a more comfortable and flexible environment for my students to have these important moments of collaboration, they will be more likely to continue the development and practice of these skills.
