Welcome back for students returning and Welcome to my class for students who are just coming to my class! I am very excited for this 2019-2020 school year! My goal for each student is to get him/her ready for success within future school grades and for their futures in the big ole' world! My classroom has an environment to create safety and feelings of comfort for each student to learn and experience new things.
A huge part of my classroom is involving visuals and hands-on expereinces! I believe students learn through visual pictures and through situations they are put in, as well as, hands-on experiences to help them understand what they are feeling and learning. Students in my class will be working together as they work in small and whole groups throughout the school day. Students will also be taught with 1:1 instruction based on their IEP academic/social needs. As we know each student learns differently and will be taught and accommodated based on how they are learn the best! As a teacher and a class we learn through mistakes together and try to understand what we could have done differently the next time. Students will learn at their own paces and within their own time. Mind Growthset is taught in my classroom as I try to have them gain confidence in the skills they would use in the real world!
As part of this environment it is needed to have communication and collaboration between teachers, para-educators, and parents/guardians. Please understand e-mail is the best way to get in contact with me. Below is my contact information if need.
