My Students

The students in my classroom are ambitious, outgoing, and hardworking. My students come from diverse backgrounds and have a lot to offer to the classroom and there peers. My students learn from one another and teach in ways that are different from us teachers. My students are on a strict schedule and time management is key and my students strive to be the best they can be.

Overall, my students have a school team behind them for academic success.

Teachers are always there from homework support to everyday questioning. The school provides a parent-student outreach time of the day for any concerns or questions. My students at my school will achieve to there fullest potential and be the learner they want to be.

My Project

Reading is tough skill for every student to accomplish. Every student reads at a different pace. Students truly enjoy hands on learning and learning experiences that are fun and engaging. As a teacher, it is crucial to have your students be active participants in the classroom. It is also important to keep in mind that all students do not learn the same.

By providing an experience where all students are engaged and enhancing there everyday reading skills, students will have a boost of confidence that they need.

Students will be given the opportunity of self correction and self reflection. Students will look forward to learning and want to find books that interest them.
