What are we working on?

During the week of November 6-10, 2017, we will be working on our novel study of The Giver, by Lois Lowry.  Additionally, students will be studying how constructed and extended writing responses are evaluated using the holistic scoring rubrics as well as learning about author's point of view.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

I believe as teachers, we hold the keys to unlocking all of the potential that our students possess. Showing students the importance of setting goals at young age will help them continue to exceed their goals as they grow older.  I understand the importance of creating an exciting and engaging learning environment when teaching.  Teachers have the unique opportunity to have a positive impact on a student’s life and the future in society.  By creating a classroom that is both informative and interactive, we can give students the tools they need to be successful in their everyday lives.  Ultimately, my goal is to not only educate students with a curriculum, but to provide them with the knowledge and principles necessary to become better people in today’s society.
